Francis Collins to be next NIH director   posted by p-ter @ 7/09/2009 07:55:00 PM

So Francis Collins, as expected, will be nominated to be the next head of NIH. From the NY Times:
[P]raise for Dr. Collins, 59, was not universal or entirely enthusiastic. Dr. Georges C. Benjamin, executive director of the American Public Health Association, called Dr. Collins's selection a "reasonable choice."
I think that's about right--this is a reasonable choice.
