Why is the FCER being disbanded?

I contacted them a few days ago, wondering about the publication of any papers from the Asthma study we had helped to fund, and received a post from Sheila Stielow, stating: “I’m not sure if you are aware but FCER is closed. This is a very recent decision”. I wrote back asking what she meant by their being closed, but I have yet to hear back from her.

FCER, founded in 1944, is (was?) the oldest and most respected chiropractic research-funding institution in the world. Since 1980, FCER has funded grants, fellowships, and residencies totaling approximately $11 million.

About the Author:

I was introduced to Chiro.Org in early 1996, where my friend Joe Garolis helped me learn HTML, the "mark-up language" for websites. We have been fortunate that journals like JMPT have given us permission to reproduce some early important articles in Full-Text format. Maintaining the Org website has been, and remains, my favorite hobby.

    The loss of the FCER leaves a gaping hole in the heart of our profession. Tony Rosner, PhD was a wizard as research director, and his humor leavened all his work.

    Hmmm…FCER web server cannot be found.

    Yup…lucky I copied relevant material’s from their website. The day I heard from Sheila they were down to one page… and since then that’s gone too. Strange. Heartbreaking. Our next BOD meeting should be interesting, debating who to tithe.

    No FCER??? Wow, times are changing. I guess we will need to find another research company to tithe to. Sad, truly a sad day.
