Duke Saga on 60 Minutes this Sunday


This Sunday February 12, the news magazine 60 Minutes will have a feature on the Duke Clinical Trials saga. Will Dr. Potti himself make an appearance? This is from the 60 Minutes web site:

Deception at Duke - Scott Pelley reports on a Duke University oncologist whose supervisor says he manipulated the data in his study of a breakthrough cancer therapy. Kyra Darnton is the producer.

The word on the street is that the segment will also feature statisticians Keith Baggerly and Kevin Coombes of the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center.

And that makes two posts this week about people at M.D. Anderson. What’s going on here?
