  • NCSU professor vindicated in claim that colleagues built big research project on false foundation

    See video from a 2013 interview with NC State professor Stefan Franzen.

He says university lawyers and administrators were more worried about controlling damage to N.C. State's reputation than about maintaining scientific standards and ethics.
