Federally Funded Health Researchers Disclose At Least

$188 Million In Conflicts Of Interest

December 6, 2019


"Federally funded health researchers reported more than 8,000 significant financial conflicts of interest worth at least $188 Million since 2012, according to filings in a government database obtained by ProPublica.


The database of disclosures reported to the National Institutes of Health, which has not been made public before, details the financial relationships of researchers at universities, hospitals and nonprofit organizations. These outside interests range from stock holdings in companies that may benefit from the outcome of research, to payments for royalties, consulting work and speaking engagements.


The NIH requires disclosures of significant financial conflictsvalued at more than $5,000 a year — because outside income from interested parties can potentially affect researchers objectivity and influence the design and findings of their taxpayer-subsidized work. Although the NIH collects the filings in a central database, the agency does not post the information online and has not released the database to an outside party before. The NIH provided ProPublica a copy of the database in September following a Freedom of Information Act request filed in January."
