POGO takes on Obama's bioethics commission

The Project on Government Oversight (POGO) has asked President Obama to remove Dr. Amy Gutmann, the President of the University of Pennsylvania, from her position as Chair of the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues.  POGO charges that Gutmann has ignored serious issues of research misconduct by a senior professor of psychiatry at the University of Pennsylvania.  Those issues revolve around published articles about the antidepressant Paxil, which another Penn psychiatrist says were ghostwritten by a firm employed by GlaxoSmithKline. Read the story on the POGO blog..

Update: more on the story at the Philly Inquirer and the Boston Globe.
