Professor: Chad Kerksick is accused of using his students as guinea pigs

A college professor did 'questionable' experiments on his students and then made money off his research, it is alleged. 

Chad Kerksick's former teaching assistant has accused the Oklahoma University of using him and other students as guinea pigs in medical experiments.

In the course of his experiments Kerksick caused pain, internal bleeding and bruising, the graduate student says.

'Many times these procedures were painful and sometimes led to internal bleeding and awful bruises', the student told local station News 9.

He is also accused of adapting some of the results of his experiments.

The student who reported Kerksick wishes to remain anonymous, but provided videos of his mentor's 'questionable practices'

He says the professor told them to keep some of the methods secret but he decided to come forward to prevent more people getting hurt.

The anonymous student says that Oklahoma University knew about the testing, but believed it was taking place in sterile medical environment.

Oklahoma University has put a stop to the research while it investigates the complaint, News 9 reported. Meanwhile Kerksick is on an unpaid leave of absence.

Another professor who worked closely with Kerksick has recently left the university and moved to Florida but the university refused to tell the station whether this was related.

The Food and Drug Administration are also looking into the complaint, News 9 reported.
