Outsourcing Embryonic Research

"The Pentagon has granted $240,000 to a Swedish team for embryonic stem-cell research linked to Parkinson's disease (news - web sites), the researchers said on Wednesday, despite U.S. government limits on stem-cell research."

Two notes:$240,000 is nothing. In a $330 billion annual budget i am surprised that the Pentagon even has $240,000 increments to dole out. I think if you picked up a Bradley Vehicle and shook it $240,00 might fall out.

Also, if we are going to do the research, we might as well do it here. Harvard is continuing to do research as are many private firms.

I am curious to see if this grant stays valid.
