Young Discusses New Requirements On Federally Funded Duke University Medical Researchers

26 March 2018 Durham Herald Sun News
Senior Counsel Torrey Young was quoted in a Durham Herald Sun article, “The feds are keeping a closer eye on Duke research grants. Why?” about the imposition of new National Institutes of Health requirements on university-based medical research in response to concerns about Duke’s handling of several recent research misconduct cases.

Young said the significance of the move is that the NIH, which funds tens of millions of dollars’ worth of medical research at Duke each year, seems worried about more than just a few individual bad actors.

“It’s a call for making sure the entire process is being overseen by the university, which is the ultimate recipient of the grant funds,” she said. “Historically, a lot of research misconduct cases have focused on the individual investigator. This is drawing more attention to institutional processes.”
