DrugMonkey began wondering, in light of the recent Homme Hellinga and Linda Buck cases, how many retractions can a lab have and survive? He says a lab can certainly survive one (things happen), but asks what happens if there are more. His readers are weighing in, one saying, "I think 1 retraction would be bad but 2+ would be damning."
Is it a Three-Strikes Thing?
