An Oklahoma professor has been accused by a former teaching assistant of using students as medical “guinea pigs,” and making deals with companies to earn money from their results, KWTV reports. A graduate student, who asked the station to remain anonymous, provided videos which revealed the experiments…and their painful results.
“Many times these procedures were painful and sometimes led to internal bleeding and awful bruises. Besides the injuries, many students were told to keep certain research practices secret.”
The student said the university knew about the experiments, but that the professor assured administrators it was done in a “sterile environment” taking “all the precautions needed.”
