University colleagues of Joseph Ladapo, MD, are charging that the Florida Surgeon General relied on a flawed analysis and likely violated the school's research integrity rules when he recommended against COVID vaccination in young men last fall
A critique from a University of Florida (UF) College of Medicine faculty task force alleges that the analysis of Florida Department of Health (FDOH) data -- which was not peer-reviewed and had no named authors -- had significant statistical and methodological problems.
Was their personal hit piece peer-reviewed? I didn't think so. Well the personal fact less attack didn't work. We have this from the UF Office of Research Integrity, Security and Compliance.
"As this work was done by Dr. Joseph Ladapo in his role as the state of Florida Surgeon General and not in his role as a UF faculty member, the UF Office of Research Integrity, Security and Compliance has no standing to consider the allegations or concerns regarding research integrity set forth in the Faculty Council task force report," Norton said in the statement. "The UF Research office continues to strongly support the freedom afforded to university researchers to independently pursue topics and present findings, as well as to provide critiques of scientific research and related policy."
I think his pay(Progressives upset that a black man is being paid for his expertise.) seems to bother some. That article stated that Ladapo would make $262,000 a year as a professor, plus $75,000 for a role focused on developing policies to reduce healthcare disparities .
The FDOH analysis released in October reported an 84% increase in the relative incidence of cardiac-related deaths in men ages 18 to 39 within 28 days of mRNA vaccination, and based on those findings, Ladapo recommended against mRNA vaccination in this age group.
