Nature. 1983 Jan 13; 301(5896): 101.
Joseph Cort, a researcher at Mount Sinai Medical School in New York City from 1976 to 1980, has admitted fabricating data on the synthesis of hormone analogues. Cort's research at Mount Sinai was supported principally by a contract from Vega Biochemicals, though he received a small amount of support under a National Institutes of Health grant to his department.
