ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - The University of Minnesota has formed a team to begin plans to change its human research program.

A Mayo Clinic doctor, William Tremaine, will lead the group examining how the school can strengthen human research practices. The group will deliver a plan to President Eric Kaler next month.

The team is part of the school’s response to two reports conducted after calls to investigate the 2004 suicide of a schizophrenic man in a university drug trial. One review said the school’s research on human subjects has weak spots. The other found school leaders routinely misled the public about how thoroughly Dan Markingson’s suicide was investigated.

University leaders and faculty members are also part of the team. It first meets later this week.
