Human brain scans in the Alzheimer’s Neurology Clinic

On today’s Big Story podcast, a 2006 research paper on Alzheimer’s has been cited more than 2,000 times over the past decade and a half. Her findings informed much of the direction the field has taken since then. More recently, an investigation concluded that important images in the paper may have been fabricated.

Alzheimer’s disease is already something of a disease puzzle. We know very little about it. And now it looks like we might not even know what we thought we knew. what happened? And what does that mean for many years of work by many doctors and scientists?

Today’s guest is Charles Beiler, investigative journalist at blood sciencesne, delves into potential scientific misconduct. He joins The Big Story to talk to us about his findings.

“The Alzheimer’s scientist has been forced to look in the mirror, and wonder what we should do to examine the scientific record and understand the implications of potential field routing through a body of research that has been shown to be possibly the result of misbehavior. So, the debate is serious,” Beller said.
