Real science is never settled, and anyone who has certainty on such things is not qualified to discuss it.
First Stanford now Harvard... well it’s likely everywhere as this is how it’s done.
Weeks after Harvard President Claudine Gay resigned amid a plagiarism scandal, the university's teaching hospital is set to retract or correct dozens of papers authored by four of their top researchers, following claims of data falsification.
Six papers have already been selected for retraction, and 31 others are in the process of being corrected by the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, according to the Harvard Crimson, citing the hospital’s research integrity officer, Dr. Barrett Rollins.
...AI is going to absolutely wreck a lot of ivory tower copycats...
WIND: are you surprised? You shouldn’t be—follow the money. What passes for science today is just a euphemism for that.
Meanwhile, this study is most amusing.
Are they ALL crooks?
I’d bet that 90% or more of these “researchers” bias or fudge their work in some way, even if outright fraud is not going on. I see no difference in outcomes as in all such studies anywhere/everywhere must be assumed to be garbage as the starting point—only a child or idiot could assume otherwise.
...all four of the implicated researchers have faculty appointments at Harvard Medical School.
...allegations of data manipulation involving 57 studies, adding that the institute’s internal review found that there are 38 papers in which DFCI researchers “have primary responsibility for the potential data errors.”
Science is crap, data is crap, follow the money.
A Harvard Medical School scientist who studies deadlybrain tumors is facing accusations that more than two dozen papers he co-authored contain scientific images that appear doctored or copied.
