Notice is hereby given that the Office of Research Integrity (ORI)

has taken final action in the following case:


Gang Yuan, Fox Chase Cancer Center (FCCC).  ORI has entered into a

Voluntary Exclusion Agreement with Mr. Gang Yuan, a former laboratory

technician at FCCC.  The agreement resolved ORI's proposed

administrative actions against Mr. Yuan, which were based on

allegations concerning research data he generated at FCCC.  The data

became the subject of an investigation conducted by FCCC and an ORI

oversight review.  The data at issue were included in a grant

application submitted to the National Institute of General Medical

Sciences of NIH and in a manuscript submitted to, but not published

by, the journal Biochemistry.


Mr. Yuan disagreed with the allegations, but to settle the matter he

has voluntarily agreed, without admitting to guilt, to voluntarily

exclude himself for the two-year period beginning October 25, 1996,



(1) any contracting or subcontracting with any agency of the United

States Government and from eligibility for, or involvement in,

nonprocurement transactions (e.g., grants and cooperative agreements)

of the United States Government as defined in 45 C.F.R. Part 76

(Debarment Regulations); and


(2) serving in any advisory capacity to PHS, including but not

limited to service on any PHS advisory committee, board, and/or peer

review committee, or as a consultant.
