Iowa Professor Resigns After Falsifying HIV Vaccine Research

Dong-Pyou Han, PhD, an assistant professor of biomedical sciences at Iowa State University, has resigned after admitting he tampered with HIV vaccine research, the Des Moines Register reports. The professor added human blood with HIV antibodies to the blood samples from the rabbits used in the research. He wanted to make it seem as if the vaccine was working. The fraudulent results helped his research team get millions of dollars in federal funding. As a result, the Office of Research Integrity at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services reached a voluntary exclusion agreement with Han that disqualifies him from federally funded research for three years.

what if the drug get approved, based on the wrong doing of this assistant professor, wouldn't that be the same of murder or at least attempted murder? he should also get jail time

3 Years!! You gotta be kidding me? He should be banned from ALL medical research for life!! When does the research team repay the MILLIONS back to the government?

What a shame that this trend continues with the fait of africa who are forced with vaccines by international communities through irresponsible governments.

It is one sad thing to defraud the taxpayers, quite another to defraud people of hope. Shame.

so you steal millions from the government by submitting fraudulent reports, you don't go to jail, you just don't get any money from the government for 3 years? sounds appropriate to me...NOT!!!
