Has Harvard University Become a Joke?

Has Harvard University Become a Joke?

Here’s The Scoop

Harvard University’s affiliated cancer hospital, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, is retracting six studies and correcting 31 others after a blogger exposed multiple papers by several authors for manipulating scientific images.

The president and CEO of the institute, Dr. Laurie Glimcher, is under investigation for four papers that molecular biologist and blogger Sholto David alleges helped build her career.

This scandal comes on the heels of Harvard’s former president, Claudine Gay, resigning after multiple allegations of plagiarism.

David’s blog reveals numerous images that he claims were Photoshopped or copied and pasted to manipulate data papers published between 1999 and 2017.

Conservative activist Christopher Rufo, who broke the story of Gay’s plagiarism, told The Daily Wire that more accusations are to come.

“There is an enormous amount of fraud, plagiarism, and falsification in elite academia,” he said. “What we’re seeing with Claudine Gay and the Harvard teaching hospital is only the beginning. It’s time for Americans to stop subsidizing this madness.”

Requests for retractions and corrections on some of the papers have been sent to the journals they were published in, according to the Wall Street Journal.

The institute has not determined if the scientists have committed misconduct. The institute is currently conducting a review of more than 50 papers written by three additional researchers: program director of the Jerome Lipper Multiple Myeloma Center, Dr. Kenneth Anderson, Director of the Clinical Investigator Research Program, Dr. Irene Ghobrial, and Chief Operating Officer, Dr. William Hahn.

Harvard University did not respond to a request for comment.

    I suppose this is what transpires when a bunch of DEI’s are placed in positions way beyond their pay grade.

    “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.”-OBAMA

    “We are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.” — Michelle Obama, May 14, 2008

    Translated: “we have to use the correct pronouns, tear down historic statues, rename schools, celebrate serial thugs, vilify our founding fathers, support reparations, feminize the milifairy and play the race card.
