FLICKR, BRIAN TURNER

The Office of Research Integrity has found neuroscientist Michael Miller guilty of research misconduct. Formerly of the State University of New York Upstate Medical Center, Miller altered figures and data in four National Institutes of Health grants, two already retracted papers, and one submitted manuscript. All efforts appear to exaggerate the effects of alcohol on fetal development.

While Miller “neither admits nor denies committing research misconduct,” he has agreed voluntarily to exclude himself from contract work for a federal agency for a year, and will have his work supervised for two years. However, he’s no longer employed by SUNY Upstate and, according to the Retraction Watch blog, his whereabouts are unknowns.

misconstrued means to misinterpret or to make a mistake in understanding--it does not mean falsify...
