Danish Misconduct

There are actually other misconduct cases being reported on beside the German former defense minister''s plagiarism. Nature reports on a Danish neuroscientist, Milena Penkowa, who resigned amidst accusations of research misconduct and misuse of grant money.

The young shooting star, who is said to have already published almost 100 peer-reviewed papers, apparently began with serious questions being raised about the experiments done for her dissertation work when the number of rats examined was apparently quite exaggerated.

Her work is seeming to be irreproducible and the University of Copenhagen had to return a quarter of a million € in grant money.
