The FDA Has No Sexual Harassment Policies For Grant Recipients

A new report by BuzzFeed News has found that federal agencies like the Food and Drug Administration are, if you can believe it, wildly unprepared to handle sexual misconduct claims.

BuzzFeed News reports that last year, University of California, San Francisco found that anti-Big Tobacco researcher Stanton Glantz had violated its sexual harassment policies and created “a work environment that was intimidating and offensive.” UCSF was not required to report the findings to agencies, including the FDA and the National Institutes of Health, who fund UCSF projects. However, Eunice Neeley, one of the women researchers who worked under Glantz, says she informed both the NIH and the FDA.

In a comment to BuzzFeed News, FDA spokesperson Nina Devlin said that the agency “does not currently have policies in place specifically addressing funding for grantees with sexual harassment charges.”
