Wonder how many researchers can get away with publicly attacking the President and get a federal grant at the same time?
Here’s the grant to Drazen. Note the dates.
Here is Drazen’s attack (w/excerpt) on Trump in the June 29, 2017 New England Journal of Medicine, where Drazen is editor-in-chief:
Are Drazen’s attack and grant related? I don’t know, but it sure is interesting. Keep in mind that the PM2.5 study in question was also partly funded by NIH.
In 1994, my research group, the Regulatory Impact Analysis project, was refused further Department of Energy funding by the Clinton administration for publishing a report concluding that federal environmental policy was determined more by politics than science. Has the federal government become that much more tolerant of critics?
