Summary

In science news around the world, China plans a shake-up of how it funds science, researchers criticize a U.S. government pause on risky virus studies, a creationist meeting planned for Michigan State University stirs concerns, a U.S. government ethics office proposes new guidelines for clinical trials involving standard-of-care treatments, the National Institutes of Health funds 12 projects to support minority researchers, a scientist files a lawsuit against users of the PubPeer website, and more. Also, a global industry-academic consortium sets out to determine the structures of 200 membrane proteins, and researchers create a human stomach from stem cells. And a Google senior vice president breaks the record for the longest and fastest free fall.
