Shelly Batts mentioned an interest link on her blog, China Stem Cells. To me, this particular organization is merely another instance of globalized health care industry. There is nothing really interesting. However, there is a paragraph on their Q&A page that, as a native Chinese, I am not quite sure how to take.

Q:“Aren’t the research standards in China not at the same levels as in the west?”

A: “… Also, because of the affordability of hiring educated researchers in China, what is lacking in education can be made up in numbers. …”

Seriously, I can’t believe someone so baldly put these words in their statement.
