More troubles at Duke: NIH suspended grants because of concerns over patient safety

Duke University

Last year,amid concerns for patient safety,the U.S.National Institutes of Health (NIH) suspended seven grants to Duke University following "allegations of research misconduct…and…potential issues concerning clinical research irregularities," we now know thanks to a letter from NIH to Duke.

As bepaly手机注册网址bepaly体育赌博Retraction Watch readers may recall,Duke recently settled a whistleblower case with the U.S.政府指控科学不端行为for $112.5 million.新描述的案例涉及不同的研究人员,these in the psychiatry department.

  1. So patients were put at risk but not harmed.The consequences are modest because,by pure luck,没有人受伤。Yes,let's definitely wait for someone to be harmed before NIH insists on real change!

    Furthermore the article indicates that Duke has made internal efforts to improve patient safety,but we know by now that Duke's internal efforts fail.The only external effort is an "advisory panel." Patients don't need advisory panels,通常要花上几年的时间,planning and making recommendations that go nowhere;patients need action!
