Cline Stripped of Research Grants
Nature. 1981 Dec 3; 294(5840): 391-392.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) decided earlier this year to require special prior approval for all future grant requests from Dr. Martin Cline, of the University of California at Los Angeles, because of his unauthorized experiments on human patients involving the use of recombinant DNA techniques. The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute, one of three NIH institutes funding research by Cline, has now taken the further step of prematurely terminating its current grant to Cline.
