He Promised to Restore Damaged Hearts. Harvard Says It Was Scientific Malpractice.

Damaged Hearts
For Dr. Piero Anversa, the autumn from scientific grace has been long, and therefore the landing arduous.

Researchers worldwide once hailed his analysis as revolutionary, promising the ostensibly impossible: how to grow new heart cells to

interchange those lost in heart attacks and heart disease, leading killers within u. s.

But Harvard graduate school and Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, his former employers, this month defendant Dr. Anversa

and his laboratory of in-depth scientific malpractice. over thirty analysis studies made over a decade contain falsified or unreal

information, officers complete and will be backward. Last year the hospital paid a $10 million settlement to the nation once the

Department of Justice alleged that Dr. Anversa and 2 members of his team were answerable for fraudulently getting analysis funding

from the National Institutes of Health.
“The variety of papers is extraordinary,”
said Dr. Jeffrey Flier, till 2016 the dean of Harvard graduate school. “I can’t recall another case
like this.”
Dr. Anversa’s story has set blank a number of the hazards of recent medical analysis
