Associate Professor Patricia Zettler was recently quoted in an article by Science Magazine titled, “FDA’s own documents reveal agency’s lax, slow, and secretive oversight of clinical research.”

“It certainly looks like FDA is enforcing clinical trial requirements much less frequently, which is troubling for protecting subjects’ welfare and ensuring the validity of data for our medical products,” said Zettler, a former associate chief counsel at the FDA.
