The National Institutes of Health is imposing more financial disclosures for Baylor College of Medicine grant applications, reports The Chronicle of Higher Education. NIH says that an investigation of the institute — brought on by a Chronicle article from the fall that named physicians who received more than $400,000 from the makers of Vytorin — raised “serious concerns” about its compliance with conflicts of interest regulations. NIH is imposing “special award conditions” on all grants that, according to the Chronicle, “affects both the application and the payment processes for NIH grants, and includes a requirement that the institution list for the NIH all participants in a project and describe any potential financial conflicts.”
