Duke Whistleblower Gets More Than $33 Million In Research Fraud Settlement

Thomas, a former Duke lab analyst, sued the university on behalf of the federal government, saying that a Duke researcher fudged data to help the university win and keep lucrative grants from two agencies, the National Institutes of Health and the Environmental Protection Agency.

The dozens of grants in question covered the study of the lung function of mice. The Justice Department says Thomas' lawsuit alleged that "between 2006 and 2018, Duke knowingly submitted and caused to be submitted" claims to federal agencies that were unknowingly paying grant money for falsified research data.

The case has also had repercussions in the broader academic world, because according to the lawsuit, the allegedly faked research was used for more than meeting federal guidelines. It also helped Potts-Kant co-author and publish 38 articles in scholarly journals with her fellow Duke researchers — which were, in turn, cited in 417 other articles when the suit was filed in 2013.

As the website Retraction Watch notes, there have now been 17 retractions of scientific papers related to Potts-Kant's work.

1. Well at least they caught them.

Now they can start to purge his research and he can die a fraud.

2. Wonder how many more are out there that have not had a whistleblower!

This could probably end up like the peer review scandal severasl years ago when it was found out that thousands of papers were reviewed and approved under fraudulent conditions.

3. Peer review is now just groupthink with a fancy name
