AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: Notice is hereby given that on March 18, 2010, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Debarring Official, on behalf of the Secretary of HHS, issued a final notice of debarment based on the misconduct in science findings of the Office of Research Integrity (ORI) in the following case: Scott J. Brodie, DVM, Ph.D., University of Washington: Based on the findings in an investigation report by the University of Washington (UW) and additional analysis conducted by ORI in its oversight review, ORI found that Scott J. Brodie, DVM, Ph.D., former Research Assistant Professor, Department of Laboratory Medicine, and Director of the UW Retrovirology Pathogenesis Laboratory, UW, committed misconduct in science (scientific misconduct) in research supported by or reported in the following U.S. Public Health Service (PHS) grant applications: • 1 P01 HD40540–01 (National Institute of Child Health and Human Development [NICHD], National Institutes of Health [NIH]) • 5 P01 HD40540–02 (NICHD, NIH) • 1 P01 AI057005–01 (National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases [NIAID], NIH) • 1 R01 DE014149–01 (National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research [NIDCR], NIH) • 2 U01 AI41535–05 (NIAID, NIH) • 1 R01 HL072631–01 (National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute [NHLBI], NIH) • 1 R01 (U01) AI054334–01 (NIAID, NIH) • 1 R01 DE014827–01 (NIDCR, NIH) • 1 R01 AI051954–01 (NIAID, NIH). Specifically, ORI made fifteen findings of misconduct in science based on evidence that Dr. Brodie knowingly and intentionally fabricated and falsified data reported in nine PHS grant applications and progress reports and several published papers, manuscripts, and PowerPoint presentations. The fifteen findings are as follows: 1. Respondent knowingly and intentionally falsified a figure that was presented in manuscripts submitted to the Journal of Experimental Medicine and the Journal of Virology and in several PowerPoint presentations that PO 00000 Frm 00136 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 24703 purported to represent rectal mucosal leukocytes in some instances and lymph nodes in other instances. 2. Respondent knowingly and intentionally falsified portions of a three-paneled figure included in several manuscript submissions, PowerPoint presentations, and grant applications. 3. Respondent knowingly and intentionally falsified a figure included as Figure 1N in American Journal of Pathology 54:1453–1464, 1999, three NIH grant applications, and several PowerPoint presentations. 4. Respondent knowingly and intentionally falsified a figure that was published as an insert within Figure 1K in American Journal of Pathology 54:1453, 1999 and included the figure in a number of NIH grant applications. 5. Respondent knowingly and intentionally falsified a figure representing a panel of four green fluorescent cells and included it as a figure in several grant applications claiming that each cell had been subjected to different treatments when three of the cells came from a single image. 6. Respondent knowingly and intentionally falsified an image included as Figure 5A in a paper published in the Journal of Clinical Investigations 105:1407, 2000 and submitted to various journals and included in different grant applications. 7. Respondent knowingly and intentionally falsified a figure appearing as Figure 3.III.A, inset, in a manuscript submitted to Science entitled ‘‘A persistent reservoir of HIV–1 in pulmonary macrophages’’ and as figures in various grant applications and PowerPoint presentations. 8. Respondent knowingly and intentionally falsified multiple versions of a figure depicting green and red fluorescent cells used as Figures 3.III.H and I in a manuscript submitted to Science, as Figures 6C and 6D of NIDCR, NIH, grant application 1 R01 DE14827– 01, as Figures C.2.1 1H and C.2.11I of NHLBI, NIH, grant application 1 R01 HL072631–01, and in PowerPoint presentations. 9. Respondent knowingly and intentionally falsified a figure, labeled as Figure 9E in NIDCR, NIH, grant application 1 R01 DE014827–01 and in various other grant applications and PowerPoint presentations. 10. Respondent knowingly and intentionally falsified the bottom half of Figure C.2.5 of NHLBI, NIH, grant application 1 R01 HL072631–01 by using the same image twice, labeling it once as being treated for 2 hours with lipopolysaccharide (LPS) and the second as being treated for 12 hours E:\FR\FM\05MYN1.SGM 05MYN1
