Meeting of the Research, Development, and Regulatory Roundtable (R3) – Postponed
10:00 AM to 3:00 PM
Location: San Francisco, CA
This meeting has been postponed.
Discussion topics: (1) Foreign Influence in Clinical Research, and (2) Impact of Fraud and Abuse Laws on Clinical Research.
- Foreign Influence in Clinical Research
The first part of the March 9th meeting will address the ongoing National Institutes of Health (NIH) and U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) investigations into foreign influence in American research. The government appears concerned that researchers who receive federal funding have failed to disclose foreign financial interests and time commitments, thus misleading the U.S. government when it evaluates research awards, thus harming the federal fisc and the American research enterprise. In addition, the U.S. government fears that foreign influence on scientific research is allowing the transfer of intellectual property to foreign countries without being subject to export regulations set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce.
