McGill University says it is reviewing the findings of a major research project into the asbestos industry and cancer caused after a CBC News investigation raised questions about links between the research and industry interests.
David Eidelman, the university’s dean of medicine, says allegations in the CBC report that several decades of research led by J. Corbett McDonald could have been influenced by the asbestos industry must be taken seriously.
But he also says holding scientific views different from those of the majority does not constitute research misconduct.
