This reminds me of an early version of the program Painter. Instead of a box, it came in a paint can. I always wondered what the cost comparison was between the two.

Iowa State AIDS Researcher Admits To Falsifying Findings

magusxxx No Deposit, No Return? (141 comments)

Didn't they also get 'more' money to continue the research? If so, when are they going to give it back? In another article I read on this it stated to the effect, "It's not customary for universities to return such funds." I also found this quote interesting... “As a matter of fact, I think the team came up with more novel ideas during the past four months than the past four years I have been at Iowa State University,” Cho wrote. Translation: "Han's work got us the money, but we weren't counting on him to bring us a win."
