“A FORMER University of Queensland professor who faked a breakthrough study on Parkinson’s disease giving sufferers false hope has been given a two-year suspended sentence for a string of fraud-related charges. Professor Bruce Murdoch falsified a research paper, which was published in the high-profile European Journal of Neurology, between 2011 and 2014. He pleaded guilty to 17 fraud-related charges and was sentenced in the Brisbane Magistrates Court on Thursday morning.”
