This cooperative project centred around a workshop series on the topic of fraud in the biomedical research world. The workshops aimed to investigate the problems — both in their present and historical forms — of fraud and scientific misconduct, but also of the problem that scientific results occasionally need a long time to be stabilised and recognised as reliable or acceptable in a particular scientific paradigm.

We brought together working scientists, historians, publishers, representatives from funding institutions and members of the legal and medical professions, and add perspectives from philosophy and science and technology studies.

The workshops were co-organised by Dr Christine Hauskeller (Egenis) with Dr Helga Satzinger and Dr Kiheung Kim (Wellcome Trust Centre for the History of Medicine at UCL).
