A Case

I found a case from the Office of Research Integrity (ORI) website, where Dr. Jun Fu, former Postdoctoral Fellow, Department of Neuro-Oncology, MDACC was accused of research misconduct in a research supported by National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH). He admitted that he knowingly and purposefully falsified a figure in a publication. He falsified the survival times of mice to show that NVP-HSP990 prolonged survival rates in glioblastoma tumor bearing mice when experimental data were incomplete and unusable. An inquiry conducted by the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center (MDACC), has recommended the senior author of the publication to take necessary actions with the Journal to rectify the result in the paper.
