Bioethics Blog Disagrees with CIRM Exec

The editors blog of the American Journal of Bioethics does not agree with the position of Zach Hall, president of CIRM, that peer review can prevent a Korean-type scandal in California.

Here's the key quote:

"This from the guy who is giving out the money. Oversight is the key to giving the money out responsibly. It is one of the reasons why we should give government funding in the first place. California has become the standard-bearer for state-based biotechnology research funding…."

This would be okay, "but not if the standard-bearer claims that fraud is best prevented by peer review."
