Discussion of faculty plagiarism at the University of Central Florida [UCF]

In a post titled Professors’ plagiarism reported
, the University of Central Florida Future describes plagiarism issues with three professors.

Of the three, Henry Daniell, professor of biotechnology, asserted graduate students were responsible for the citation errors, and was found not guilty. Since the charges, Daniell has received three major grants totaling $7 million: one from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for research on a pill-form polio vaccine, one from the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and $5.5 million from the National Institutes of Health for hemophilia research in partnership with the University of Florida.

A paper of Daniell in Nature Biotechnology is entitled: Overexpression of the Bt cry2Aa2 operon in chloroplasts leads to formation of insecticidal crystals.
