Duke University to pay $112.5 million over research misconduct

Duke University has agreed to pay $112.5 million to settle claims by a whistleblower that a former research technician knowingly submitted fake data in applications for federal research grants. False claims were submitted by Erin Potts-Kant in connection with 30 grants, starting in 2006, causing agencies to award funds. Joseph Thomas, the whistleblower, will receive $33.75 million.

it's bad enough that science is under a microscope by mouthbreathers in our country, we dont need to give them any ammunition.

It's almost as if the EPA and NIH base their opinions off of faulty, unsettled science, and they use their money and influence to claim it is settled science. Not suprised by this at all
