In Report on Research Compliance, Valerie Bonham Addresses Foreign Influence in Federal Grant Funding
An article published by Report on Research Compliance discusses three recent criminal indictments of investigators for undisclosed foreign support and other issues involving National Institutes of Health and National Science Foundation grants.
Health care and life sciences counsel Valerie Bonham (Washington, D.C.) explains that oversight is expanding for federal grant awardees. Rising concerns about integrity in science, unreported conflicts of interest and peer review violations are driving funders to examine certain activities more carefully. Increasingly sophisticated tools to identify and track compliance problems, plus whistleblower incentives, may be contributing.
