Drug Whistleblower
Dr. Jonathan Fishbein

Dr. Jonathan Fishbein

In 2005, Dr. Jonathan Fishbein alleged that a National Institute of Health (NIH)-funded clinical trial of the antiretroviral drug nevirapine to treat HIV/AIDS was invalid because of poor data collection, faulty record-keeping, and lax quality control.

He was fired from his position as Director of the NIH Office for Policy in Clinical Research Operations after exposing this misconduct. However Dr. Fishbein ultimately won his whistleblower case, which was supported by NWC, and was reinstated, setting a national precedent protecting government doctors from retaliation.
