Notice. Notice is hereby given that the Office of Research Integrity (ORI) has taken final action in the following case: Zhiyu Li, Ph.D., Mount Sinai School of Medicine: Based upon the evidence and findings of an investigation report by the Mount Sinai School of Medicine (MSSM) and additional analysis conducted by ORI in its oversight review, ORI found that Dr. Zhiyu Li, former Postdoctoral Fellow, MSSM, engaged in research misconduct in research that was supported by National Cancer Institute (NCI), National Institutes of Health (NIH), grant R21 CA120017. ORI found that falsified and/ or fabricated data were included in the following published papers, submitted manuscript, poster presentation, and grant applications: • Li, Z., Fallon, J., Mandeli, J., Wetmur, J., & Woo, S.L.C. ‘‘A Genetically Enhanced Anaerobic Bacterium for Oncopathic Therapy of Pancreatic Cancer.’’ JNCI 100(19):1389–1400, October 2008 (hereafter referred to as ‘‘JNCI 2008’’) (Retracted 02/2010). • Li, Z., Fallon, J., Mandeli, J., Wetmur, J., & Woo, S.L.C. ‘‘The Oncopathic Potency of Clostridium perfringens is PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Independent of its a-Toxin Gene.’’ HGT 20:751–758, July 2009 (hereafter referred to as ‘‘HGT 2009’’) (Retracted 03/2010). • Li, Z., Fallon, J., Mandeli, J., Wetmur, J., & Woo, S.L.C. ‘‘Oncopathic Bacteriotherapy with Engineered C. perfringens Spores is Superior and Complementary to Gemcitabine Treatment in an Orthotopic Murine Model of Pancreatic Cancer.’’ Submitted for publication in Can. Res. (hereafter referred to as the ‘‘Can. Res. Manuscript 2009’’). • Li, Z., Fallon, J., Mandeli, J., Wetmur, J., & Woo, S.L.C. ‘‘Oncopathic Bacteriotherapy with Cp/plc-/sod-/ PVL is Complementary to Gemcitabine Treatment for Pancreatic Cancer in Mice.’’ Presented at the 12th Annual Meeting of the American Society of Gene Therapy, May 27–30, 2009. • R21 CA120017–02 • R21 CA120017 Final Progress Report • R01 CA130897–01 • R01 CA130897–01 A1 • R01 CA130897–01 A2 • R01 CA130897–01 A2 Supplemental Material • R01 CA148697–01 The JNCI 2008 and HGT 2009 papers were retracted, and the Can. Res. Manuscript 2009 was withdrawn. ORI found that the Respondent intentionally, knowingly, and recklessly engaged in research misconduct by falsely claiming to have generated recombinant Clostridium perfringens (Cp) strains, Cp/sod-, Cp/sod-/PVL, and Cp/plc-/sod-/PVL, to depict the effects of recombinant Cp strains on their ability to destroy cancer cells in a murine model, when these bacterial strains were not produced nor the data derived from them, and by falsifying histopathological data reported in fiftyseven (57) images in two (2) published papers, one (1) submitted manuscript, two (2) poster presentations, and seven (7) of Respondent’s supervisor’s grant applications and fabricating the corresponding nineteen (19) summary bar graphs that were based on those false images. Specifically, Respondent trimmed and used portions of Figure 6 (right panel) of a draft R21 CA120017–01 grant application, representing an image of liver tumor two (2) days after injection of Cp/plc- bacteria, to represent unrelated results from different experiments in: • Figures 5D and 7C (left panel), grant R21 CA120017 Final Progress Report • Figure 6A, grant R01 CA130897–01 • Figures 9D and 17A (top left, middle, and right panels and bottom left panel), grant R01 CA130897–01 A1 E:\FR\FM\25JYN1.SGM 25JYN1
