    A graduate student finds that her supervisor has completed and submitted a paper she had started, including fabrication of some data she has not yet collected.  The paper is soon published, with her name first, and the data she collects does agree with the result in the paper.  Then she discovers that the supervisor has been known to fabricate data for other students’ work. What should she have done?  What should she do now?
