UConn’s Handling of Research Misconduct Lauded

Earlier this month, University of Connecticut researcher Dipak Das was found by a special review board to have fabricated data in his study of the possible benefits of resveratol, a chemical found in red wine. As expected, there is outrage in the academic community. But there is also the question of how UConn handled the situation once it knew what was up. The Boston Globe editorializes that UConn got it exactly right—transperancy, disclosure and due process to come.
