A University of Idaho veterinary medicine professor can go back to work after university investigators cleared her of accusations of scientific misconduct.
Marie Bulgin's research into disease transmission between domestic and wild sheep received criticism after she testified to the Idaho Legislature last year. Bulgin has been an advocate for the sheep industry.
The university launched an internal investigation into whether she falsified or fabricated any part of her research. In a news release yesterday, the school said there's no evidence that Bulgin committed any misconduct.
Bulgin had taken a break from her research work while the investigation took place, but can now go back to researching and teaching at the Moscow university.
