    Subject "Research Misconduct – Lessons learnt from case studies"
    Summary Great concern over scientific misconduct has been expressed by both the scientific community and the public at large. In Japan, repeated media coverage in 2014-2015 of two incidents, namely the fraudulent data for the antihypertensive drug Diovan marketed by Novartis, and the STAP cell scandal, evoked widespread concern. In my lecture, I will analyze some misconduct cases and summarize lessons learnt from them.
