    Did anyone consider that Irv Weissman courted Trounson while Trounson was at CIRM by entertaining him at his ranch in Wyoming and taking him on a fly-fishing trip in Alaska? It seems like that might have affected Trounson's opinions of CIRM grant applications from Weissman and from Weissman's company totaling $70 million. And that doesn't include a $40 million genomics grant that Trounson promoted for Stanford, Weissman's institution. $443,500 seems like just the right price for favoritism.

  2. Suspect that this is only the tip of the iceberg since Trounson was rumored to be talking with many companies while he was at CIRM, including some in San Diego.
