Hospital mulls research fund review

The administration of Glostrup Hospital is prepared to launch an investigation into whether its control procedures are adequate after it was revealed that a second doctor there had misused research funds for private expenses.

Dr Michael Laub is accused of spending 30,000 kroner in research funding to repay personal debts.

The news comes after it was revealed earlier this year that another of the suburban Copenhagen hospital’s doctors had syphoned off six million kroner in research funding for his own use.
