Federico Infascelli, professor of Nutrition and Animal Nutrition in the Department of Veterinary Medicine, is accused of falsifying the results of some research about the dangers of feed containing GMOs in animal feed raw materials and products derived therefrom. This is a very serious accusation, in the world of scientific research, which exposes him, if confirmed, to criminal charges (third party) and penalties that could suspend his ability to publish using the name of the university, suspend him from the university offices, or may go further, with financial and career implications.

A commission of inquiry appointed by the rector specially, Gaetano Manfredi, found very serious infringements, hardly the result of an oversight, but rather aimed at a clear goal: to invent outright a false  experimental result that demonstrates the dangers of GMOs.

. . . the scientific journal “Animal” asked Infascelli to retract his publication. A retraction was called for because Infascelli has not demonstrated the absence of manipulation, has provided incomplete explanations and has shown “very poor laboratory practices”.
