Wake-Up Call for Research Compliance
On March 28, Bloomberg Law published an article entitled, "Duke's Fraud Trouble Is a Wake-Up Call for Research Compliance." The article covered Duke University's $112.5 million settlement for faking research data and discusses how the case is a warning for other companies to ensure their data complies. In the article, health care attorney Kate Heffernan notes, "the most important take-away from this settlement for institutions is that the potential for liability under the False Claims Act in the context of research misconduct cases cannot be ignored."
