(3) RIKEN's Shocking Suicide !

The RIKEN Obokata STAP cell fiasco has led to the schocking suicide of a top research scientist in the stem cell field.

He was working with Obokata on STAP cell research and was involved in the writing of Obokata's scientific research paper on the existence of STAP cells.

As to whether Obokata was successful in creating STAP cells in the laboratory was still up in the air.  She did of course, make a sensational announcement to the Press and to the world that she had done what many scientists have failed to do.  She said she had made STAP cells.

However, it came out later that Obokata's research had been sloppy.  She didn't keep proper notes and parts of her scientific paper on the subject appeared to be copied from other sources.  

Basically, she could not produce enough evidence to support her find.  There was no proof to show that she had truly made an amazing Nobe prize level discovery.                                         (V.C)
