    German Scientist “Faked cancer research”
    German university investigators are on the verge of exposing a "scientific Chernobyl" involving scores of bogus Scientific papers they 'claim were fraudulently published by a cancer research professor who duped the international community for 15 years.
    The case centers on the German professor FriedheIm Herrmann, who until two years ago was a leading cancer research specialist at the universities of Mainz, Freiburg and Ulm ' and the Max Delbruck institute for molecular medicine in Berlin. A special task force at Wurzburg University, which has been examining Dr. Herrmann’s work for 18 months, says it has evidence that the results of at least 80 of his published cancer research tests were faked.
    The extent of the fraud is far greater than we expected” said Roland Houben a taskforce member.” initially we assumed that there were 47 doctored, but now we suspect that at least 80 were faked.'
    The taskforce leader, Professor Ulf Rapp, said, "They developed an aversion to using
    Genuine data."
    Dr Herrmann, who gave up research in 1977 when suspicions were raised and now works as a, general practitioner, has refused to talk to the Wurzburg team was not available for comment yesterday.
    In an interview with the German Magazine Focus earlier this year, he said he was not aware that his published studies had been faked. He blamed the fraud on co-authors and said he should have intervened. It is a drama. My main calling is not research. I was and still am a doctor," he said.
