Swedish professor accused of scientific fraud

30.01.2006
A researcher group at Karoliska Institutet in Sweden is accused of scientific fraud including copying of articles, inventing scientific tests, imaginary patent registrations and dubious animal testing.
The Swedish Research Council‘s expert group now publishes one of the most widely ranging cases of scientific fraud in Sweden, reports Swedish newspaper Dagens Nyheter. Three experts have been engaged by the Research Council to examine the accusations of fraud committed by a chief physician now forced to leave his postition at Karolinska Institutet.

The expert group has not been able to find documentation of the research actually taking place at Karolinska. The researcher himself replies that the expert report is wrong and subjective and written for Karolinska Institutet.
