What does the U's secret IRB investigation report say?

And so it goes.  A year after I asked the U's Institutional review Board (IRB) to look into this alarming study, which eventually wound up on Fox 9 News, I finally have a response.  

"The IRB Investigation Panel has completed its work and the IRB has prepared an investigation report. However, this matter is not yet concluded as the University has decided to engage an outside entity to further evaluate the allegations and IRB findings."  Right. 

In 2007, the IRB Director, Moira Keane, said in a deposition that it was not the job of the IRB to protect patients. Exactly. At the University of Minnesota, the job of the IRB is to protect the institution.
