Update: Panel Clears Schatten of Misconduct. ‘A University of Pittsburgh panel has declared stem cell researcher Gerald Schatten innocent of research misconduct in the Korean stem cell debacle. But his failure to more closely oversee research with his name on it does make him guilty of “research misbehavior,” according to a report released today.’
