"The Experiments" Screening, Oct. 29

Doctor picture
On Monday October 29, Join the Minnesota Center for Philosophy of Science and the Hopper Family Foundation for the first US screening of the film: The Experiments 
In January 2016, Bosse Lindquist’s documentary trilogy The Experiments exposed one of the most spectacular human research scandals of the modern era. Paolo Macchiarini, a celebrated transplant surgeon at Sweden’s Karolinska Institute, had implanted an experimental synthetic trachea in patients all over the world and claimed great success. In fact, Macchiarini had falsified his scientific results, and his experimental surgery left at least five patients dead. Despite the efforts made by four whistleblowing surgeons to stop Macchiarini, Karolinska Institute officials defended him for years and threatened the whistleblowers with dismissal.
