Mr. Switzer received a BS in Microbiology from Clemson University in 1981 and an MPH from Emory University in 1992" -
The CDC has a number of people with MDs and PhDs in virology and other related fields, so why did they pick this guy with a MPH (Master, Public Health) to do real research on XMRV and discuss assays? On the job training for hard sciences doesn't work for me. I do think you need all those years of education to give you the background you really need to do this type of work. Just me, but why did they pick THIS guy?
I'm not being phoney here, but WHY this guy???
