We'd like our money back, please

From Jodi Cohen of Pro Publica:

In December the university (University of Illinois at Chicago) quietly paid a severe penalty for Pavuluri’s misconduct and its own lax oversight, after the National Institute of Mental Health demanded weeks earlier that the public institution — which has struggled with declining state funding — repay all $3.1 million it had received for Pavuluri’s study.

In issuing the rare rebuke, federal officials concluded that Pavuluri’s "serious and continuing noncompliance" with rules to protect human subjects violated the terms of the grant. The NIMH said she had "increased risk to the study subjects" and made any outcomes scientifically meaningless, according to documents obtained by ProPublica Illinois.
