Seven days: 30 December–5 January 2012

The week in science: researcher arrested for supplying stem-cell clinic; XMRV studies retracted; and a professor faces criminal charges for lab death. PEOPLE
Stem-cell arrest A US university scientist was arrested on 27 December, accused of supplying stem cells for use in unapproved therapies. The US Department of Justice says that Vincent Dammai, a researcher at the Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, supplied the stem cells to Global Laboratories in Scottsdale, Arizona, without the approval of his university or of the US Food and Drug Administration. Three other men are accused in the case, which may be the first in which a researcher has been charged with supplying stem-cell clinics. See go.nature.com/vvxznh for more.
