Einstein in the News

The New York Times interviews Arturo Casadevall, M.D., Ph.D., about the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS) study he co-authored that found misconduct, not errors, is the cause of most retractions. The PNAS paper showed that in the last 35 years retractions for fraud or suspected fraud have increased 10-fold. Dr. Casadevall believes that unless the scientific community changes its "winner-take-all" culture, the rise in retractions will continue. Dr. Casadevall is professor and chair of microbiology & immunology and the Leo and Julia Forchheimer Chair in Microbiology & Immunology at Einstein.
