This was the case of a doctoral student and faculty member, Jon Sudbo, from the University of Oslo. He was also a physician in the Department of Medical Oncology and Radiotherapy that was accused of scientific misconduct by reporting falsified research in grant application 1 P01 CA106451-01 submitted to the National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH), and its first-year progress report.
It was found that he falsified results and a progress report for the awarded grant in the project Oral Cancer Prevention with Molecular Targeting Therapy. He falsified the number of patients that had been screened for admission to the study. Also Dr. Sudbo admitted that he failsified data in three publications to demonstrate the feasibility of preventing cancer in a high risk population with nontoxic oral agents.
Unfortunately Dr. Sudbo destroyed his career. In 2007 he enter in the Voluntary Exclusion Agreement with the purpose of excluding himself permanently from any contracting with any agency of the United States Government without the possibility of reducing the scope of the permanent voluntary exclusion. Besides this permanent exclusion, he had to also exclude himself from serving in any advisory capacity to Public Health Service.
