In case of investigator burnout...

The primary issue is whether an investigator can continue to use animals in an approved protocol when the project has not yet produced suitable results. Anyone involved in experimental science knows that usable results are not easily obtained, and there is no regulative restraint on such continued use of animals, as long as there is proper oversight of the project. That oversight is in place here, from the IACUC and from the agency funding the research. Because McNulty is and experienced investigator with a previously productive record, it appears that the funding agency was satisfied with her accomplishments before approving this project.
