The discussion will be based on the March 8, 2017, New York Times Article “Years of Ethics Charges, but Star Researcher Gets a Pass”

In this Forum, we will address:

  1. The lengthy history of allegations of data falsication & scientic misconduct
  2.  Institutional responses
  3. The complexity that research institutions (such as universities) and scientic journals face in investigating and responding to research misconduct.
