Dr. Nancy Olivieri, University of Toronto whistleblower, has signed the petition to investigate the research scandal at the U. In addition to the comment she left on the petition, she writes:
"The refusal of the University to honour the
responsibility it holds to to Dan Markingson, and to safeguard patient safety
in clinical trials, is both shocking and astonishing, although before the
Markingson scandal surfaced, I did not think I could be further astonished by
institutional attempts at obfuscation.
The continued refusal of the University to fairly and openly investigate
the circumstances of this tragedy makes a mockery of the ethics of clinical trials
and patient consent."
