What Do You Think?

Should CIRM continue its policy of secrecy concerning grant applications and the economic interests of those who make de facto decisions on scientists and institutions that should receive tens of millions of dollars of public funds?

    My vote goes for a public list.
    Anyway, it is possible to identify the applicants based on the public texts of grant applications, abstracts and evaluations.

  2. As an inquiry, is CIRM making public the text of all grant applications, whether approved or rejected?
