Duke University will pay $112.5 million to settle a research misconduct lawsuit filed against the university for acquiring federal research grants by using faked data. A former employee and whistleblower Joseph Thomas accused Duke University of submitting falsified data to acquire grants worth $200 million from federal agencies like the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Environment Protection Agency (EPA).
