Short biography
David Willman is an investigative journalist whose work has prompted major public reforms – including a ban in 2005 of drug company payments to government scientists at the U.S. National Institutes of Health.   He was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for investigative reporting in 2001 for articles in the Los Angeles Times exposing how unsafe prescription drugs had been approved by the Food and Drug Administration.  His reporting led to the withdrawal of Rezulin, an aggressively marketed pill for Type 2 diabetes.  Willman's many national honors include the top award bestowed by Investigative Reporters and Editors Inc., and, with colleagues, the George Polk award.  His groundbreaking reporting in 2008 on the investigation of the deadly anthrax mailings was honored by the Scripps Howard Foundation as the year's best Washington-based coverage.   [from Mirage Man (2011)]
