Most Scientific Studies Today Are ‘Fake” Science’

Sigh! Yet again, another sad commentary on the current state of peer-reviewed science. I for one, have done everything but beg investigators to replicate my work. If there are any takers, they haven’t told me about it! I even presented my results at a scientific meeting in Washington, D.C. (Olympus Bioscapes, 2011). I received an honorable mention and they gave me back a nice framed reproduction of one of my photographs. In fairness, the competition was about how “pretty” your photomicrographs were so they could plug their microscopic equipment. In that regard, I was lucky I got an honorable mention because many of the photomicrographs were more like works of art rather than simple photography.┬áHere is a photo of the framed picture:

About frankabernathy

I am a retired cell biologist and alumnus of Ohio State University. I became interested in chromosomes as far back as the 1960's when I wrote a term paper on the effects of radiomimetic drugs on chromosomes. I was fascinated at how they could break apart and reform new structures so easily. I became further involved in the early 1970's after taking a cytogenetics course at the University of Arkansas. I took that knowledge with me to Ohio State in 1980 where I eventually worked on my research and completed my Ph.D. dissertation, "Studies on Eukaryotic DNA Superstructure". My studies and later research suggested that the DNA within the eukaryotic chromosome is not the simple, linear molecular thread so widely suggested in all the classic textbooks published today. Instead, it may be the culmination of a geologically rapid set of endosymbiotic events where microorganisms plug into each other to create something greater than themselves.
