The Scientific Integrity (Sci-Int) project is an endeavor funded by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), whose goal is to develop solutions to identify misconduct in scientific research through the detection of image tampering in scientific papers.

Working together with the Universities of Purdue, Notre Dame, South California (USC), Campinas (Unicamp), Naples Federico II, and the Politécnico di Milano, our team leads the development of Provenance Analysis to detect and explain how problematic images relate to each other, and how they share content across different papers. Moreover, we also investigate the detection of synthetically generated scientific images, such as false gel blots.
