STA630 GDB Solution & Discussion Fall 2016


Former professor of University of Queensland (UQ) – Bruce Murdoch –falsified a breakthrough study on Parkinson's disease and gave sufferers a false hope from his fake research. The charges came after an unprecedented investigation by the Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) and professor had been charged with 16 fraud-related offences. Dr. Murdoch had published a research paper in the high-profile European Journal of Neurology, between 2011 and 2014, heralding a major breakthrough in the treatment of Parkinson's disease for which he along with his colleague received $20,000 grant. But it is revealed that study was never conducted, and the university later confirmed no supporting data could be found. During his career, Dr. Murdoch had more than 13 books and 380 peer-reviewed articles published. He was highly regarded by his peers and was a member of the editorial board of 10 international journals and an editorial consultant to 20 other international journals. CCC found that Dr. Murdoch was suffering from severe depression and reeling from a cancer diagnosis at the time.
