The first complaint, the News report-
ed, alleges CSX workers unwillingly par-
ticipated in research and the researcher,
neurology Prof. James Albers, failed to
get a waiver from the workers prior to
performing the study.
The University contends that a waiver
was not necessary since the research was
conducted using data from earlier tests
the workers had agreed to.
The health system, quoting federal
guidelines, said in a statement that
waivers are not necessary if "research
involng the collection or study of exist-
ing data, documents, records, pathologi-
cal specimens, or diagnostic specimens,
if these sources are publicly available or
if the information is recorded by the
investigator in such a manner that sub-

In the second study, a patient undergo-
ing tests for a pituitary tumor com-
plained to the OHRP that she did not
give consent to a study of mangnetic res-
onance images of her brain conducted
while being treated for the tumor.
In its response, the University said the
MRI tests were a mistake due to a mis-
reading of the physician's handwriting.
The University said the physician intend-
ed to order the same tests for the patient
as those participating in a research study, Continued from Page 1

Cash said, referring to former President
Hideki Tsutsmi's turbulent term.
Remnants of that turbulence were evi-
dent at the conference.
"A few unacceptable things did hap-
pen, however, that quite frankly made me
furious," Nolan said. "Unfortunately,
they all stemmed from U of M, specifi-
cally from Jessica Curtin"
Curtin allegedly brought members of
the Defend Affirmative Action Party
who are not University students to the
conference using a University van.
The DAAP members sat in on voti
sessions, and Curtin proposed two res
lutions that had not been previously
approved by the MSA executive officers,
"The conference was for MSA dele-
gates only ... We were honestly thorough-
ly embarrassed to have had it happen,"
Nolan said. "ABTS was made worse by
this." The issue will be brought before the
general assembly when it reconvenes
Curtin chose not to comment on the
allegations but said she felt the confer-
ence was a success because of a resolu-
tion which was passed to educate other
Big Ten schools about recent racial ten-
sions and events at Penn State.
"The ABTS conference did do some-
thing real," Curtin said.
Overall, the delegates generally agree
that the convention was a success.
"We built some bridges that hadn'
existed in the past, as well as set up so
projects that make me very excited just
thinking about them,"Nolan said.
The University will host the next
ABTS conference in February.
