Just a Change Here and There

The Office of Research Integrity says that Ningarai swapped pictures of control and treated brain tumors and recycled old data as new data. According to The Scientist, Ningaraj, who is now at the Mercer University School of Medicine, has nether confirmed nor denied the allegations, though he has entered into a settlement agreement which prohibits him from partaking in research supported by the Public Health Service until the summer of 2012.
