Eugenie Mielczarek & Brian Engler- SPACS Colloquium October, 18 2012

Science policy at the intersection of physics, biology and medicine — some startling concepts

Thursdays at 3:00 pm in Research Hall room 163

Mielczarek abstract: A study of twenty years (1992-2012) of federal funding for alternative medicine:  What have we learned? Ignorance of science regarding concepts of energy, fields, and the laws of thermodynamics  have driven funding in health care research. We will focus on these concepts and our research on  NIH NCCAM grants that impart a veneer of respectability onto unproven Alternative  Medicine protocols.
