All Charges Against Former UF Research Professor Dr. Dov Borovsky Dropped & Expunged
GAINESVILLE, Fla., July 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- All charges stemming from consulting work against Dr. Dov Borovsky, a tenured former University of Florida Research Foundation professor who garnered significant media attention for his research and brought in millions of dollars of grant funding to the University over his 36-year career were dropped. The charges in question have since been expunged from Dr. Borovsky's record. Borovsky, a world leader in his field, gained recognition for his discovery and development of an environmentally-friendly mosquito control technology known as TMOF. The University of Florida has been awarded 16 patents for his technology, and UF continues to receive licensing fees for these patents.
The University alleged that Dr. Borovsky worked as an outside consultant on university time without completing the proper University of Florida approval forms, and that he failed to properly document to the University three airfare reimbursements from a private company for whom he was consulting. It was determined that only two of the airfares had been erroneously reimbursed to Dr. Borovsky—the third allegation turned out to be completely inaccurate. Dr. Borovsky vehemently denied all the allegations against him, and after further investigation the State Attorney dropped all charges against him.
Once Dr. Borovsky was made aware of the administrative oversight and allegations against him, he promptly provided the appropriate documents to the University, demonstrating his willingness to comply with University policy and making clear the fact that any compensation received from the private company rightfully belonged to him personally. The University of Florida was entitled to no portion of these funds. Dr. Borovsky also immediately reimbursed the University for the appropriate amount relating to the airfare charges resulting from the oversight.The mishap that precipitated Dr. Borovsky's charges is indicative of problems with the University failing to effectively outline and communicate policies regarding outside private sector work.
