IRB is "reserving judgment" on whether to investigate Jean Kenney, but says it is "investigating current human research practices in the Department of Psychiatry.”

On March 4, Leigh Turner and I wrote a letter to the University of Minnesota IRB, asking for an investigation into all research studies involving former study coordinator Jean Kenney. (Kenney was the subject of a corrective action by the Minnesota Board of Social Work in November, 2012.)  last week we received a reply.  The IRB is "reserving judgement" on whether to investigate studies involving Kenney, but says it is currently investigating research practices in the Department of Psychiatry. 

Here is our reply.
