A move toward bias-free science
by Cynthia Henry, Philadelphia Inquirer staff writer
The 15,000 scientists and engineers who protested the manipulation, suppression, and distortion of research during the Bush administration no doubt welcomed President Obama's pledge last week to restore scientific integrity to the White House.
Lifting the ban on research on embryonic stem cells Monday, Obama promised to let "scientists like those here today do their jobs, free from manipulation or coercion" and to listen "to what they tell us, even when it's inconvenient, especially when it's inconvenient." He assigned his advisers to develop integrity safeguards within 120 days.
