Hillary on Fauci

Given the interest in whether federal funding for XMRV research into
X-associated neuroimmune disease will be forthcoming, I'm re-posting
a blog from September 23, 2009 about Anthony Fauci, the director of
the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease.  Fauci has
refrained from public comment for eight months on the discovery of
XMRV in "chronic fatigue syndrome," a discovery that suggests "cfs"
is an infectious disease.

Best wishes,
Hillary Johnson

"the agency refused to fund nearly every grant proposal going forward, most notably, proposals from UCSF molecular biologist and HIV-discoverer Jay Levy; University of Pittsburgh Cancer Institute scientist Seymour Grufferman, a nationally recognized cancer epidemiologist who identified evidence for infectiousness among a simultaneous cluster outbreak of "cfs" and B cell lymphomas; and Elaine DeFreitas, a retrovirus investigator and rising star at the world-renowned Wistar Institute in Philadelphia who had identified evidence for retroviral infection in "cfs" in the late 1980s."
