Two days after a heart research paper was retracted, questions have been raised about a stem cell study overseen by the same prominent Brigham and Women’s Hospital cardiovascular researcher.
A Brigham and Women’s Hospital stem cell study, which raised the possibility that the human heart could repair itself, has been retracted after an internal investigation showed the researchers used “compromised” data.
Officials from the prestigious RIKEN research institute in Japan disclosed the interim results of its investigation into controversial stem cell papers Friday, acknowledging serious problems with the research but no evidence so far of outright fraud. Three RIKEN scientists have now agreed to consider a retraction, in addition to a prominent Japanese scientist and senior author of one of the papers who earlier this week called for the papers to be withdrawn.
