Marc Tessier-Lav­i­gne steps down from Re­gen­eron board

Marc Tessier-Lav­i­gne stepped down from Re­gen­eron’s board of di­rec­tors. The move comes af­ter he re­signed as Stan­ford Uni­ver­si­ty’s pres­i­dent fol­low­ing a sci­en­tif­ic mis­con­duct in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Re­gen­eron an­nounced Fri­day evening that Tessier-Lav­i­gne re­tired as of Sept. 1. He had been on Re­gen­eron’s board since 2011.

An in­ves­ti­ga­tion opened by Stan­ford’s board of trustees found that sev­er­al pa­pers for which Tessier-Lav­i­gne had been a co-au­thor or prin­ci­pal au­thor had ma­nip­u­lat­ed re­search da­ta. The in­ves­ti­ga­tion com­mit­tee didn’t find ev­i­dence that Tessier-Lav­i­gne him­self had fal­si­fied or ma­nip­u­lat­ed sci­en­tif­ic da­ta.
