X Rx: No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

More on WPI upheaval from Dr. Jamie, with comments
Comment from pat fero:

THinking about the larger picture: IF we had funding, FUNDING FOR SPECIFIC CFS biological studies and not the junk funding from NIH which may be wonderful within another context, would we be in this spot. WE NEED MILLIONS of dollars so researchers, like everyone else in this economy do not have to compete, squabble and grovel for 150,000 here and there.
NIH is the problem CDC is the problem. These splits and wrangling over intellectual property happen everyday, but we only know about this one because the WPI and ALL the people concerned stepped out of the box. NIH FUNDING BIAS IS THE TOP ISSUE.
