Penkowa case

Last modified: November 8, 2018

Milena Penkowa is a former Danish neuroscientist. In 2010 she was accused of scientific misconduct, as her graduate students were unable to replicate her previous results. During the investigation, accusations of having misspent part of a 5.6 million kroner research grant were also levelled against her. Penkowa herself denied any wrongdoing, but resigned her professorship in December 2010. In August 2012 an international panel of 5 researchers who had been carrying out an investigation of Penkowa’s research for The University of Copenhagen concluded that there is “no doubt that there is justified suspicion of deliberate scientific malpractice in 15 of Penkowa’s articles.”
