The Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA) is a United States research agency under the Director of National Intelligence's responsibility. In January 2008, Lisa Porter, an administrator at NASA with experience at DARPA, was appointed director of the activity formed in 2006 from the National Security Agency's Disruptive Technology Office (NSA DTO), the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency’s National Technology Alliance and the Central Intelligence Agency’s Intelligence Technology Innovation Center.
He is extremely devoted and dead set on the fact that he doesn't want to give up control over the research, or accept funding or anything like that UNLESS those behind it have the same goals as he does, which are to provide people with helpful medicines and NOT to just turn people into customers or take advantage of them. This has pissed a lot of people/organizations off and places like Pfizer and individual "investors" are beginning to get a bit too pushy.
