An Iowa State University professor resigned after admitting he falsely claimed rabbit blood could be turned into a vaccine for the AIDS virus.
Dr. Dong-Pyou Han spiked a clinical test sample with healthy human blood to make it appear that the rabbit serum produced disease-fighting antibodies, officials said.
The bogus findings helped Han’s team obtain $19 million in research grants from the National Institutes of Health, said James Bradac, who oversees the institutes’ AIDS research.
Hey, but don't worry, this is probably just an isolated incident, right? Sure, most "professors" seeking my tax money are just honest, hard-working folk who, for some reason, can't get a job which makes a profit for someone. Of course not ... filthy profits? Perish the thought.
Also, when they get your money, they never spread it around to their friends and family. By the same token, when their friends and family get money out of your pocket, they NEVER offer it to a
temporarily short of grant money down-on-his-luck "professor." Noooooo, that NEVER happens.
Anyway, man-o-man ... a fraud of 19 MILLION CURP. I bet that guy is really going to get punished, don't you? Oh yes, taking our hard earned tax money and stealing for himself and his "department" (aka, friends.) That's right, when they're done with this guy, NOBODY will want to try to perpetrate this kind of fraud.
Han agreed last month not to seek government contracts for three years, the register said. The rest here:
