Penn Cancer Center, in lawsuit, says a doctor appropriated a discovery

The New York Times, February 6, 2012

The president of Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York is in a billion-dollar dispute with his former workplace, a cancer institute at the University of Pennsylvania, over accusations that he walked away with groundbreaking research and used it to help start a valuable biotechnology company. In a lawsuit, the Leonard and Madlyn Abramson Family Cancer Research Institute at Penn described its former scientific director, Dr. Craig B. Thompson, as "an unscrupulous doctor" who "chose to abscond with the fruits of the Abramson largess."
