Jon Sudbø has resigned

Jon Sudbø has resigned his position as senior consultant at Rikshospitalet-Radiumhospitalet Medical Center.

- The hospital finds this a satisfactory solution, according to HR director Toril B. Ressem. As Sudbø’s employer, the hospital has granted him leave of absence for the three months until his resignation takes effect.

The Commission was appointed in January after a researcher at the hospital admitted to having falsified the raw material for a scientific article published in the medical journal The Lancet in the autumn of 2005. The Commission has deemed most of the researcher's scientific publications invalid due to the manipulation and fabrication of raw data. Accordingly, his doctoral dissertation will be rescinded, as will a number of his later works.
