+ - More troubles for authors of controversial acid-bath stem cell articles. ->

Submitted by bmahersciwriter
bmahersciwriter (2955569) writes "Reports early this year about a strikingly simple method for deriving pluripotent stem cells were met with amazement and deep scepticism, then claims that the experiments were not reproducible, then accusations of copied and manipulated figures. Now, the first author of one of the papers is being lambasted for having copied the first 20 pages of her doctoral thesis from an NIH primer on stem cells. And an adviser on her thesis committee says he was never asked to review it. Could this get any stranger? Probably!"
