The current crop have made it abundantly clear that they will not be doing ID research. I can't say that I blame them. ID, in its current form, does not lend itself to scientific experimentation.
I think this is rather unfair, there are maybe a handful of researchers who are doing proper experimental work. The problem as I see it is more that they don't have a really coherent framework or ID theory to build hypotheses on.
People like Doug Axe and Ann Gauger are at least performing proper lab experimentation. I don't think that any of their work makes a coherent argument either for ID or against traditional darwinian evolutionary trajectories, but again I'd put this down to the lack of a sufficient theoretical framework for ID. I assume that they themselves believe they do.
