Dr. Michael Lichtenstein’s seminar examines the importance of integrity in science and discusses a website’s effort to provide oversight in regards to science publications. Dr. Lichtenstein provided the following comment regarding the focus of his seminar: 

“This seminar underscores the importance of science as a public trust. Using a case-study approach, “Scientists Behaving Badly ” will explore the case of Anil Potti at Duke University Medical Center to illustrate the adverse impact of falsifying data. The seminar will demonstrate “RetractionWatch.com” as a resource for information regarding retractions, journal responses, and the need for transparency in research review.” 

Students and faculty members are encouraged to attend this seminar as Dr. Lichtenstein lectures on this very important topic. Event details are below:
