The National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation together fund more than $40 billion of research annually in the United States and around the globe. These large public expenditures come with strings, including a complex set of laws and guidelines that regulate how scientists may use NIH and NSF funds, how federally funded research may be conducted, and who may have access to or own the product of the research. Until recently, researchers have had little instruction on the nature of these laws and how they work. But now, with Robert P. Charrow's "Law in the Laboratory", they have a readable and entertaining introduction to the major ethical and legal considerations pertaining to research under the aegis of federal science funding. For any academic whose position is grant funded, or for any faculty involved in securing grants, this book will be an essential reference manual. And for those who want to learn how federal legislation and regulations affect laboratory research, Charrow's primer will shed light on the often obscured intersection of government and science.
