A recent report from The Washington Post about researcher Piero Anversa’s falsified heart research at Harvard Medical School is a tragedy.
Not only has this researcher duped the general scientific community, his 31 scientific papers suggested a new area of research for young cardiologists, and those who are following this path and chasing a red herring.
Doing great research is a challenge and a burden. Pursuit of greatness can alter the objective mentality that is needed for a true scientific mindset. See my recent comments on James Allison, PhD, the latest Nobel Prize winner in medicine.
Anversa is not alone. There is an entire website devoted to withdrawn research. Review it <<<HERE>>>> You will be amazed how much of what is taken for accurate results is ultimately withdrawn from the scientific literature, and often without such fanfare.
