Newsclip®: [Sports] Report: NFL sought to influence study on brain injuries - Houston Chronicle

"New Jersey Rep. Frank Pallone says the league tried to strong-arm the National Institutes of Health into taking the project away from a researcher who the NFL feared was biased. Since its research agreement with NIH was clear that it could not weigh in on the grant selection process, the NFL should never have tried to influence that process. Pallone initiated the investigation after ESPN reported that the NFL had backed out of funding the NIH study because of its objections to Stern. NFL Medical Director Dr. Elliot Pellman emailed the executive director of the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health, which raises private funding for NIH research, and said the league had significant concerns regarding Boston University 'and their ability to be unbiased and collaborative.'", www.chron.com
