It is estimated that these drug samples were analyzed and tainted between 2004 and 2011. Tens of thousands of samples are estimated to have been contaminated. There are also recent allegations that Dookhan lied on her resume, claiming to have a master’s degree in chemistry from the University of Massachusetts. She has no such degree.
