Autism Research Leadership: Katie Wright Rips the Interagency Autism Coordinating Committee and Dr. Tom Insel

Katie Wright has written a hard hitting piece,"Can You Hear Me Now?", on the role of the IACC and Dr. Tom Insel in preventing funding of meaningful vaccine autism studies including the comparative study of vaccinated and unvaccinated populations. The article was written for SafeMinds and reprinted with permission at Age of Autism. Ms Wright calls for Secretary Sebelius "to investigate Dr. Insel’s actions and reinstatement of vaccine objectives that were removed under false premises in January from the IACC’s Strategic Plan. "

It will be interesting to see whether President Obama and Secretary Sebelius respond to the SafeMinds/Katie Wright request. Given Secretary Sebelius statements about the safety of the as yet untested Swine Flu vaccine and thimerosal it does not seem likely that the Obama administration will conduct a critical examination of the IACC and Dr. Insel's leadership on vaccine and autism issues.
