Research Misconduct Allegations Shadow New CDC Head

The Trump administration announced that HIV expert Dr. Robert Redfield will lead the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, ignoring complaints that his work on a high-profile vaccine research more than 20 years ago was flawed. “Either he was egregiously sloppy with data or it was fabricated,” said former Air Force Lt. Col. Craig Hendrix, a doctor who is now director of the division of clinical pharmacology at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.

Experts question the timing and meaning of the terminations by a White House now seen as detached from the HIV/AIDS community and possibly disdainful of science-based solutions to public health issues.
