Office of the Associate Dean for Research

The College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) is a pioneer and an internationally recognized leader in animal health research. We are uniquely positioned to provide solutions to current and emerging problems at the interface of animals, humans, and the environment that threaten animal and human health. These problems are global, interlaced, and complex, and require multidisciplinary integrated approaches that unify biology and medicine.

Our researchers aim to reveal and resolve the increasingly intertwined elements of animal and human health in our environment based on the concept of One Medicine and One Science. Exciting research is being conducted within CVM Departments and across our three Signature Programs.

Retractions, Post-Publication Peer Review & Fraud: Scientific Publishing's Wild West with Ivan Oransky, M.D.
Seminar Q&A: Thursday, April 19 | 9:30 am - 11:00 am
Coffee & Conversations: Thursday, April 19 | 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm Note: The Coffee & Conversations session is limited to graduate students, post-docs and research trainees.
Location:  Ben Pomeroy Student-Alumni Learning Center, Room 215

Ivan Oransky, M.D., Distinguished Writer in Residence, NYU Carter School of Journalism Institute | Co-Founder, Retraction Watch
Ivan Oransky and Adam Marcus founded Retraction Watch in 2010.  Unbeknownst to them, retractions had grown ten-fold in the previous decade. In this seminar, Oransky will discuss the reasons for that increase, whether fraud is on the rise, the growth of post-publication peer review, and other trends he and Marcus have identified. Their site is now viewed by 150,000 people per month and has been funded by the MacArthur and Arnold Foundations, and the Helmsley Trust. This conference builds on a recent report from the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine: Fostering Integrity in Research. This report finds that "the research enterprise faces new and complex challenges in fostering integrity and in dealing  with the consequences of research misconduct and detrimental research practices".
