Scientist Confessed Fabrication of Data in Sleep Study

Fabrication and falsification of data has again been tried to mislead human minds and this time it was attempted by a former assistant professor at Harvard Medical School, Robert Fogel.
Robert Fogel spoiled the study data and cooked it in a manner that desired results could come out in certification. The study was conducted on sleep apnea among the severely obese patients.
Results of this research study were published in an internationally reputed journal “Sleep” in the year 2003 and were titled as “anatomic and physiologic predictors of apnea severity in morbidly obese subjects”. The journal has now retracted the publication.
