    One of Britain’s leading universities embroiled in major research scandal

    16 MAY 2018 • 10:00PM

    One of Britain’s leading universities has become embroiled in a major research scandal, after an inquiry found that scientific papers were doctored over an eleven year period.

    Professor David Latchman, Master of Birkbeck and one of the country’s top geneticists, is accused of “recklessness” by allowing research fraud to take place under his watch at University College London’s (UCL) Institute of Child Health.

    UCL launched a formal investigation after a whistleblower made allegations of research fraud in dozens papers published by scientists at the Institute.

    He's a Commander of the British Empire (CBE)

    I think the body responsible for handing out shiny gongs needs an office of Integrity to do due diligence.
    Kinda like a Devils Advocate.
