U of M professor Carl Elliott’s quest to find why no one loves a whistleblower

Elliot published his own article on botched research at the University of Minnesota. The U didn’t respond well. Carl Elliot

In 2008, Carl Elliott, a professor in the University of Minnesota’s Center for Bioethics, read an article by the Pioneer Press about a young man named Dan Markingson.

Markingson had been committed with a psychotic illness. Against the continued protests of his mother, he became a subject in an experimental clinical trial for an anti-psychotic drug called Seroquel through the University of Minnesota. His mother continued to protest after Markingson was discharged to a halfway house, where his mental health quickly deteriorated. She worried he’d kill someone, or himself.

He later did kill himself — nearly took off his own head with a box cutter. He left a note saying he went through the experience ‘smiling.’

He conducted his own investigation, and even sat down with Markingson’s mother, who seemed rational and thoughtful even after people at the U of M had made her sound unreasonable. Elliott published his own article on the botched study in Mother Jones shortly afterward. He thought some national attention would force the U of M to reckon with its actions, perhaps even to make reparations to a mother robbed of her son.

Scientific Gardens

In colonial America, Philadelphia was home base for a community of ardent plant enthusiasts who came together on the banks of the Schuylkill River. There they competed to cultivate exotic specimens, fostering an Enlightenment-era spirit of inquiry that eventually led to the discipline of botany. At the Woodlands, a private estate built between the 1760s and 1780s, wealthy collector William Hamilton amassed what was possibly the largest collection of flora in the country and constructed a state-of-the-art greenhouse known to have been visited by Thomas Jefferson. Hamilton, with the help of his friend and neighbor, seed dealer William Bartram, created a garden dedicated to aesthetics and to building a scientific collection of plants from around the world.
