    Unfortunately the main story appears to be under a "Science" pay wall. Here is a commentary and short summary on the disturbing event.

    Absolutely horrible, especially the way that it was handled. Good thing she moved to another lab. Unfortunately I've heard stories like this before, such as people tampering with chemicals to mess up people's experiments. The hard world of competition in science..

    I read the entire article last week, and I could not understand why her supervisor turned against her, considering that he and the school were the ones who helped set up the hidden camera to catch the saboteur. All I got was that he wanted her to keep the incident under wraps, which was odd considering he might need to use it to explain to the funding agency on why they were not getting any results.

    A similar case happened in 2010 to a graduate student at the University of Michigan:
