U.S. Finds Misconduct by Ex-Researchers at Chicago and UCSF

December 15, 2014

A federal agency today issued findings of misconduct by former researchers at the University of Chicago and the University of California at San Francisco.

In a notice in the Federal Register, the Office of Research Integrity at the Department of Health and Human Services found that H. Rosie Xing, a former assistant professor at Chicago, falsified research supported by the National Cancer Institute by using a set of manipulated images. Though Xing disputed the findings, she agreed to limits on her involvement in federally supported research work for three years.

In its other finding, the research integrity office concluded that James P. Warne, a former senior scientist in UCSF's diabetes center, falsified data in two publications and two grant applications for work supported by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. He, too, agreed to limits on his involvement in federally funded research for three years.
