The Van Andel Research Institute has agreed to pay $1.1 million to resolve allegations of failing to disclose foreign ties in awards granted by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), in violation of the False Claims Act.  The foreign ties included foreign-sourced research samples and funding by the Chinese government.  In December 2019, the institute settled similar claims for $5.5 million.  With this second settlement, specific conditions have now been imposed on the remainder of the institute’s NIH grants, including a requirement that an executive-level manager personally certify to disclosures until October 2022.  USAO WDMI
