On Conflicts of Interest, Grassley Not Conflicted
5 February 2009 2:43 pm
Continuing his quest to bring to light researchers' conflicts of interest, Senator Charles Grassley (R-IA) has introduced an amendment to the stimulus package the Senate is considering that would force the National Institutes of Health to keep a tighter leash on its grantees.
The legislation requires that for grants of more than $250,000, recipients report the amounts of any significant financial interest of the principal investigator, and explain how a resulting conflict of interest will be managed. Currently, NIH does not require grantees to report dollar amounts of their potential conflicts of interest. Debate on the amendment could happen anytime between now and Saturday.
