Foreign influences on research – the current state of play

As we begin 2020, potential foreign influences on U.S. government-sponsored research continue to be a significant area of federal oversight activity.

The National Institutes of Health (NIH) has recently sent out a number of new Lauer Letters, some of the earlier NIH inquiries have reached a conclusion, and, in December, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) reached a False Claims Act settlement with the Van Andel Research Institute (VARI) to resolve allegations of undisclosed grants from China. Hogan Lovells represented VARI in this significant matter.

During our complimentary 60-minute webinar – the second in our series on foreign influences on research – we discussed the current state of play when it comes to NIH oversight activity.

Topics included:

  • Lessons learned from the Van Andel Research Institute False Claims Act (FCA) case.
  • Responding to a Lauer Letter.
  • Congressional oversight activity, the next shoe to drop?
