Erasmus University Dismisses Professor After Research Fraud

The Medical Center of the Erasmus University in Rotterdam has dismissed Medical Professor Don Poldermans. According to the university, the Professor has invented research data and damaged the confidence of patients. According to the university, Poldermans has presented results which cannot be concluded from the patient information. He has been working at the hospital for decades. Poldermans said that he did not follow the guidelines, but did not falsify data. (Recently Diederik Stapel, a Professor of Social Psychology at Tilburg University admitted to years-long fraud.)
