Responding to Herman and Durfee’s April 29, 2014 letter, Lemmens and colleagues expressed “no confidence” in the planned inquiry. In a message sent to Richard Beeson, Chair of the University of Minnesota’s Board of Regents, Lemmens’ wrote, “I would like to inform you, on behalf of my colleagues, of our disapproval of how the university administration is now proceeding and urge you to explicitly ask for the establishment of a more independent inquiry with a wider mandate. We can only improve research standards and procedures if we are willing to learn from what may have gone wrong.”
