National Institutes of Health Scientists made $710M in Royalties From Drug Makers – A Fact They Tried to Hide

Share this post:


New data from the United States National Institutes of Health (NIH) reveal the agency and its scientists collected $710 million in royalties during the pandemic, from late 2021 through 2023. These are payments made by private companies, like pharmaceuticals, to license medical innovations from government scientists.

Most of the royalties outlined in this news story, around $690 million, reportedly went to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), a subagency of the NIH that was led at the time by the notorious Dr. Anthony Fauci. Despite the important questions raised by this revelation, the NIH continues to withhold specific details about individual payments, and it remains unclear whether royalties from COVID-19 vaccine makers Pfizer and Moderna are included in the figures.

The situation has already prompted legislative action, with U.S. Senator Rand Paul sponsoring the so-called Royalty Transparency Act to increase transparency regarding such payments. Meantime there are growing concerns over the close relationship that exists between government agencies and the pharmaceutical industry, as evidenced by their apparent collusion during the COVID-19 pandemic.

To read how NIH principal deputy director Lawrence Tabak has recently admitted that, in the months and years before the COVID-19 pandemic, American taxpayers funded controversial gain-of-function research on viruses at the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China, see this news story on our website.
