The scandal that could undo 15 years of Alzheimer’s research

In today’s Big Story podcast, a 2006 research paper on Alzheimer’s has been cited more than 2000 times over the past decade and a half. His conclusions have informed many of the directions the field has taken since then. And a recent investigation concluded that the critical images in the paper may have been fabricated.

Guest of the day, Charles Piller, investigative journalist Blood Sciencene, dig deep into possible scientific fallacies. He joined The Big Story to talk to us about his findings.

“The world of Alzheimer’s disease has been forced to look in the mirror, and ask ourselves what we must do to examine the scientific record and understand the consequences of potential field steering by a body of research that has proven possible. result of wrongdoing. So the debate is serious,” said Piller.
