Turner to feds: "Investigate us! Please!"

Leigh Turner, my colleague in the Center for Bioethics, has asked the federal Office of Human Research Protections to investigate the University of Minnesota's Human Research Protection Program.

His request was prompted not just by last week's damning external review, but by President Kaler's claim that the review "found no legal or compliance problems."  In fact, the review points to a number of instances in which the University appears to have violated federal research guidelines.

You can read his full request to OHRP on the Health in the Global Village blog.
