Irina Stancheva was investigated in Edinburgh for fraud at least twice, in 2009 and 2017, yet retraction and correction decisions were not implemented. Apparently to protect the reputation of Nobel Prize candidate Sir Adrian Bird and his male mentees, primarily Richard Meehan. One wonders: how much of Bird research in past two decades was actually fabricated by Stancheva?
A scientist was “dismissed” by the Department of Biological Sciences at the University of Edinburgh, UK. It was the cell biologist Irina Stancheva who specialises on the epigenetics and regulatory methylation of DNA. Her institutional website was deleted just hours after I sent my email inquiries to her former faculty colleagues.
