A former University of Oregon professor who received millions of dollars in federal grant money confirmed Wednesday that he's requested retractions of four research papers published in scholarly journals because one of his graduate students fabricated data.
Nationally known brain researcher Edward Awh, who recently moved to the University of Chicago, declined to say why David E. Anderson, the UO grad student, knowingly falsified research results.
The University of Oregon investigated the misconduct and reported it to federal officials. The U.S. Office of Research Integrity published a notice saying the UO grad student engaged in misconduct in research supported by the National Institute of Mental Health and the National Institutes of Health. Grants listed in the notice amounted to $5.47 million over eight years. The notice said that Anderson would be subject to intensive supervision when conducting any further research.'
