Sued for negligence as an IRB chair, now an "expert" research reviewer for the U

If you had any slim, lingering suspicion that the U might be conducting a legitimate investigation into its psychiatric research, this blog post by Leigh Turner will put it to rest. The post is worth reading in its entirety, but here is an important passage:

"At the time AAHRPP appointed Dr. Frumin as a reviewer of the University of Minnesota’s research protections programs she was being sued for negligence along with other IRB members. Dr. Frumin and the other IRB members have since been dismissed from the suit because the judge assigned to the case concluded IRB members do not have legal duties to research subjects."

  1. Professor Elliott, this is very important, you must tell former research subjects to complain to the Minnesota Board of Medical Practice. Their phone number is 612 617-2130.
