Several laboratory notebooks, a personal computer and flash drives containing WPI research data and other information disappeared from WPI’s research offices, on or near, September 29, 2011. These valuable materials represent the hard work and sacrifice of many people and were paid for by WPI. Your donations were part of the financial resources that supported this research.
We have waited until now to tell you this news in hopes that the individual or individuals responsible for this loss would realize the gravity of the situation and return WPI’s property in a timely manner. WPI has previously sent a demand letter to the one person responsible for, and with access to, these locked materials and various electronic files. Despite this request, our valuable materials have still not been returned.
Because of the lack of response, WPI has been forced to take legal action demanding the return of our property and has reported the incident to the police and other authorities. WPI received notice this week that a temporary restraining order has been granted to keep our materials from being altered or destroyed, and requiring they be delivered to WPI immediately. We hope that this matter is quickly resolved and that further costly litigation is avoided.
Kom: Det må vel sies at det har vært meget stille fra WPI de siste månedene, iallefall når det gjelder fortløpende oppdatering fra facebooksiden deres. Ut i fra disse nyhetene er det mye som tyder på at de har flere problemer å håndere i tillegg til å ha full drift på den nye pasient-klinikken. At forskningsdata kommer på avveie er meget uheldig.
