Hot Topics No. 5: Catch me if you can, Clinical Investigator Fraud and Other Data Integrity Issues

Fraud has changed and become much more aggressive and egregious in recent years. ZOOM in with us for an hour and hear about this remarkable case presented by a seasoned Lawyer and FDA Investigator. Follow the timeline of the “Doctor” in the chase of the case.

Would you pursue success at all costs, no matter how immoral or illegal? What if you could fool a hundred people and make millions of dollars and get away with it.

Hear about this fascinating case of how a man, posing as a physician, conned regulators and hundreds of people by conducting clinical trials on the unsuspecting public and pharmaceutical companies. Was he cavalier enough to escape? “Catch me if you can”.

Each month we will select a Hot Topic and request for input on questions, scenarios, and topics to be covered. Please send ideas and general questions to: [email protected]

This is the fifth of a continuing forum that primarily focus on hot topics in the legal and compliance realms, such as: privacy and data security matters; litigation and disputes; malpractice and insurance; contracts in the age of pandemic (e.g., force majeure clauses, Defense Production Act, etc.); product liability; IP; corporate; AI and robotics.

This forum will be complimentary to OCRA Members.
