MD Anderson’s Bharat Aggarwal inquiry still ongoing; center uninvolved in legal threats
When we learned earlier this week that Bharat Aggarwal, the MD Anderson researcher under investigation there for possible misconduct, had directed his attorneys to send us a pull-all-your-posts-about-our-client-or-we’ll-sue-you letter, we wondered if he’d included the Houston institution in that decision.
Turns out he’d been acting on his own. Scott Merville, a spokesperson for MD Anderson told us last night that Aggarwal had not consulted the hospital on the move.
Merville also confirmed that the inquiry into Aggarwal’s research was ongoing, although he would not provide a timetable for a possible report on the findings.
