    (BOSTON GLOBE)– Pharmaceutical companies pay for the clinical trials that Dr. Yoav Golan conducts on antibiotics at Tufts Medical Center. They also pay him tens of thousands of dollars a year to give speeches and advice about their drugs. (more…)


    (SCIENCEMAG) – The director of the U.S. government office that monitors scientific misconduct in biomedical research has resigned after 2 years out of frustration with the “remarkably dysfunctional” federal bureaucracy. David Wright, director of the Off (more…)


    “(I)t’s against the law to do many things, but the law winks when a reputable man wants to do a scientific experiment.   For example, the criminal code of the City of New York holds that is a felony to inject a person with infectious material. Well, I tested out live yellow fever vaccine right on my ward in the Rockefeller Hospital. It was no (more…)


    (ACHILLEASKOSTOULAS) – In case you missed it, the ‘big story’ in academic news in the past week was the retraction of more than 120 papers that had been published by Springer and the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE). The retraction followed the discovery, by Dr. Cyril Labbé of Joseph Fourier University, (more…)

    Thirty years ago this spring, actor Rock Hudson tested “positive” on the new “HIV test.”  A year and a half later, he was dead of so-called “AIDS” after sensational media reports set off a sexual panic.  We look at the more likely causes of death – and why those causes matter. (more…)

    (THE NEW YORKER)In 2001, seven years after joining the biology faculty of the University of California, Berkeley, Tyrone Hayes stopped talking about his research with people he didn’t trust. He instructed the students in his lab, where he was raising three thousand frogs, to hang up the phone if they heard a click, a signal that a third party might be on the line. (more…)


    (OTB) – A recent piece in The Economist points to an issue that has been a recurring theme at OTB over the years: there’s reason to be deeply skeptical of most research published in scientific and other scholarly journals.

    NY POST – An Iowa State University professor resigned after admitting he falsely claimed rabbit blood could be turned into a vaccine for the AIDS virus.  Dr. Dong-Pyou Han spiked a clinical test sample with healthy human blood to make it appear that the rabbit serum (more…)

    He was a top-performing Staff Sergeant with the Air Force, but since 2011 David Gutierrez has languished in a small cell at Fort Leavenworth prison, proclaiming his innocence to anyone who will listen.

    (THE ECONOMIST) – “I SEE a train wreck looming,” warned Daniel Kahneman, an eminent psychologist, in an open letter last year. The premonition concerned research on a phenomenon known as “priming”. Priming studies suggest that decisions can be influenced by apparently irrelevant actions or events that took place just before the cusp of choice. They have been a boom area in psychology over the past decade, and some of their in (more…)

    (RETRACTION WATCH) – Alan Sokal’s influence has certainly been felt strongly recently.  Last month, a critique by Sokal — who in 1996 got a fake paper published in Social Text – and two colleagues forced a correction of a much-ballyhooed psychology paper.  A few days after that, we reported on a Serbian Sokal hoax-like paper whose authors cited the scholarly efforts of one B. Sagdiyev, a.k.a. Borat. (more…)


    19 Sep (ProPublica) – It seems that every time researchers estimate how often a medical mistake contributes to a hospital patient’s death, the numbers come out worse.  In 1999, the Institute of Medicine published the famous “To Err Is Human” report, which drop (more…)
