I was wondering if you planned on submitting this proposal to ACE?

They're currently funding research like this. I'm actually spending my Sunday morning trying to figure out the relative benefit of additional research (in animal welfare it would be tremendous I think, since the existing body of evidence leaves much to be desired).

The next question is how can we fund this sort of research effectively? While ACE is running their funding operation, and I think it's extremely smart of them to do so, it'd be a good hedge to have multiple gatekeepers.
