HIV Research Fraud Verdict Upheld by Federal Appeals Court

A federal appeals court has upheld the 2010 judgment of a federal court that Weill Medical College at Cornell University and a former faculty member submitted false claims to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) related to grants for HIV/AIDS research, according to a statement by Salmanson Goldshaw, PC, the law firm representing Daniel Feldman, PhD, the whistleblower in the case. In 2003, the university and Wilfred van Gorp, a clinical neuropsychologist, were sued by Feldman, a fellow hired by van Gorp, alleging misuse of the NIH grant. At trial, Feldman showed that of the 165 clinical patients seen by the fellows over five years of the NIH grant, only three patients were HIV positive. Instead, the fellows engaged in more lucrative activities, often evaluating individuals referred by insurance companies. Cornell and van Gorp face a total judgment of up to $1.75 million.
