Dr. James Murtagh
In 1999, Dr. James Murtagh, a former faculty member at Emory University Medical School, blew the whistle on fraud in research grants at the medical school. In retaliation for his whistleblowing, in 2000, a medical peer review removed Dr. Murtagh from his professor’s position at Emory University Medical School. After years of litigation, he eventually won his case.
