Research ethics: case studies and discussion

14:15 - 15:00 Auditorium between Building 4 and 5

Dr. Damien Lightfoot will talk about several cases of research ethics violations, including the Schön scandal in the Bell Labs between 2000 and 2002 as well as the South Korean stem cell controversy of 2004 to 2006. He will discuss the “slippery slope” from questionable research practices to fraud and the potential implications that range from manuscript retraction to civil and criminal court proceedings. Damien will also explore the responsibility of co-authors and colleagues in these cases.
