Envy: The Cutthroat Side of Science

May 16, 2013

Envy: The Cutthroat Side of Science
Experts discuss the pressures that may lead scientists to misrepresent data and hinder the self-correcting mechanisms of science.

This is excerpted coverage of our event, Envy: The Cutthroat Side of Science, which addressed the issues of dishonesty in science, the motivations for misconduct, and possible solutions. Scientific American editor-in-chief Mariette DiChristina moderated the panel, consisting of physicist, entrepreneur, and government advisor Harold Garner, PhD; radiologist and author Morton Meyers, MD; and journalist Ivan Oransky, MD.
