University Research Scrutinized in Report

(Minnesota Daily) – The University of Minnesota’s human subject research program has significant shortfalls that may put participants at risk, a report released Friday found. The report, in which an external committee reviewed how the University protects human subjects with diminished functional abilities, follows over a decade of scrutiny after University research subject Dan Markingson committed suicide in 2004 while participating in an antipsychotic drug study. School leaders plan to implement several of the report’s 63 recommendations.
