Laboratory Lies: The Farak & Dookhan Drug Scandals and The Future of Laboratory Internal Controls 

Every day, a team of chemists test samples collected by police officers across the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to verify that they are illicit substances. But how can we ensure that these chemists are conducting accurate tests? This project explores the Drug Lab Scandals that plagued the commonwealth in the early 2010s and assesses what internal controls can be used to prevent similar tragedies from occurring again.
