Specifically, by her own admission, Ms. Wanchick engaged in research misconduct by fabricating information in the electronic database purportedly collected from 150 individuals about their willingness to sign up to be an organ donor at the time they obtained a driver’s license. Ms. Wanchick also admitted to fabricating the information on several survey instruments. The study at issue was entitled ‘‘Community Based Intervention to Enhance Signing of Organ Donor Cards.’’ ORI acknowledges Ms. Wanchick’s cooperation and assistance in completing its oversight review and resolution of this matter. Ms. Wanchick has entered into a Voluntary Settlement Agreement in which she has voluntarily agreed, for a period of three (3) years, beginning on June 5, 2009: (1) To exclude herself from serving in any advisory capacity to PHS, including but not limited to service on any PHS advisory committee, board, and/or peer review committee, or as a consultant; and (2) that any institution that submits an application for PHS support for a research project on which the Respondent’s participation is proposed or that uses the Respondent in any capacity on PHS-supported research, or that submits a report of PHS-funded research in which the Respondent is involved, must concurrently submit a plan for supervision of the Respondent’s duties to the funding agency for approval. The supervisory plan must be designed to ensure the research integrity of the Respondent’s research contribution. Respondent agrees to ensure that a copy of the supervisory plan also is submitted to ORI by the institution. E:\FR\FM\24JNN1.SGM 24JNN1
