Christopher Gillberg

Lars Christopher Gillberg (born 19 April 1950), who has sometimes published as ''Gillberg and Gillberg'' with his wife Carina Gillberg, is a professor of child and adolescent psychiatry at Gothenburg University in Gothenburg, Sweden. He has also been a visiting professor at the universities of Bergen, New York, Odense, St George's (University of London), San Francisco, and Glasgow and Strathclyde.

Gillberg is also known for the controversial Gothenburg Study of Children with DAMP, where Gillberg and his colleagues were subject to accusations of manipulating research data. During these events, Gillberg received a suspended sentence as well as a fine, due to that he was found guilty of malfeasance in office due to his failiure to make the research available for review. After a court looked over the case again and ruled that the data was to be made available for a review, three of Gillbergs coworkers destroyed the 22 shelf meters of research material. Which they were subsequently sentenced for. The case was widely covered in the media.

Gillberg is also the founding editor of the journal ''European Child & Adolescent Psychiatry''. Provided by Wikipedia
