Research Misconduct case filed in Ohio medical center

The Office of Research Integrity at DHHS found in May 2020 that Logan Fulford, graduate research assistant at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, and former graduate student at University of Cincinnati, engaged in research misconduct during projects supported by the National Cancer Institute, NIH, and the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute. In this investigation, Fulford was found to have intentionally falsified data by relabeling and repurposing existing images for his own findings. While there has been no plea, Fulford has agreed to a supervisory period of 2 years in which he will disengage with all research activity unless ORI has approved specific plans to work under the guidance of another researcher.
