ISU Researchers Denied Money After Fraud Charges
AMES, IA (CBS2/FOX28) - An Iowa State research group is now being denied money it had been awarded by the National Institutes of Health.
The aids research group was awarded more than a million dollars for their research on a vaccine but that was before fraud charges were filed against a team member.
Federal prosecutors say Dong-Pyou Han fudged his results, to make it look like the vaccine was working.
Han pleaded not guilty to fraud charges in earlier this month and is now awaiting trial.
The NIH now says the grant will not be given to ISU.
The team will keep working and is looking for other sources of funding.
