Career

Grassley has proposed a federal law, the Physician Payments Sunshine Act, which would require drug and device companies to register on a public website virtually all payments made to physicians.[2]

Grassley wrote in a February 2014 letter to the Office of Research Integrity about the fraud of Dong-Pyou Han, who was dismissed after admitted fabricating and falsifying data in HIV vaccine trials that "this seems like a very light penalty for a doctor who purposely tampered with a research trial and directly caused millions of taxpayer dollars to be wasted on fraudulent studies". Nature writes that his intervention was instrumental in the sentence being upped to 57 months in jail and a US$7.2 million file, with 3 years of supervised release after he leaves prison.[1]
