Quotes

...the truly sinful waste of money in research, "skilled administrator and excellent communicator" Collins was quoted a few months ago in USA Today :  "we are throwing away probably half of the innovative, talented research proposals that the nation's finest biomedical community has produced."
Dr. Francis Collins, director of the NIH, said his agency sometimes likes to consider itself the "national institutes of hope" and that "hope just went up a notch today."
...It's not like we suddenly woke up and thought, 'Oh my gosh, we should have something ready here,'" Collins said . "frankly, if we had not gone through our 10-year slide in research support, we probably would have had a vaccine in time for this that would've gone through clinical trials and would have been ready."
