both of their project completion dates have come and gone with no news
In my 9 years of SCI, I have observed this a few times. John McDonald called me personally one night around 2004 (Dr. McDonald knew a good friend of mine that is SCI) several years ago and indicated good things would happen soon . . . . . .

Darwin Prokop was poised to do a clinical trial at Tulane Medical Center in New Orleans in 2006. My state invested 44 million dollars into his lab, his research, and his efforts. He basically disappeared and the entire project was disbanded with no explanantion . . . . .

Back when Davies was in Houston, TX in early 2005, I went to his lab. Said he was on the verge of major progress. Then he moved to Denver, CO. Told me he was on the verge of major progress in 2007 . . . . .

The only 2 SCI researchers that have done anything close to what they have predicted is Dr. Young and Hans Keirstad. This is strictly my personal observation and my opinion.
