Nobel Prize winner Thomas Südhof admits errors in further work. Three further publications are said to contain careless errors.

Image detective Bik analyzed more than 10,000 images in articles and preprints from the Sü dhof Group using AI tools. The result was several copy-paste errors with images in the three articles. The errors do not change the results of the work; they are “completely irrelevant to science” For some of his employees, however, the allegations are ‘devastating’ and some have quit.
