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.

False research can encourage other researchers for use of wrong track for their study work

False research can harmful societies’ people who have Parkinson’s disease as fake research can delay the development of life-saving

fake research is violation of law in most of countries but in some countries its not violation It encourages people to do fake study on researches...

bari mushkil se bnaye hain 3 points ...itnay bht hain 

This false study is detrimental to the researcher because it will lead to a loss of good reputation and credibility. Ethically Dr. Murdoch does not work with honesty and integrity. State provides funds for research that is very hope filled for the patient. According to current false information, Dr. Murdoch legally implies misrepresentation and false disclosure of information.

Fake research can enable different scientists to use the wrong track for their study work. Fake research can destroy relatives of social orders who have Parkinson's disease as a false research can postpone improving life saving
