Conflict of Interest Disclosures Exposed

Federally funded researchers have disclosed some $188 million in “significant” financial conflicts of interest since 2012, after the NIH toughened up reporting rules.
That’s a low estimate, since 44% of the disclosures did not list a dollar value. The reporting range tops out at $600,000, according to an NIH database made public for the first time by ProPublica. But some conflicts could be worth much more than that.
The biggest conflicts came from researchers with a stake in private companies that could benefit from their research.
