Science has since retracted the articles. The school decided to fire Dr. Hwang following a disciplinary meeting, saying he and his co-workers caused the school to lose honor. Dr. Hwang has apologized in public for inflated data in the articles and has accused other researchers of deceiving him with falsified results.
