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.”
