Harvard Weighs a Change in Conflict-of-Interest Rules.
Mangan, Katherine S.
Chronicle of Higher Education, v46 n37 pA47-48 May 19, 2000
Reports that Harvard University Medical School is considering policy changes that would ease financial restrictions in its conflict-of-interest standards for faculty researchers. Supporters argue that such changes are necessary to attract and retain top researchers, but ethicists warn that as collaborations between industry and academic medicine increasingly offer large financial rewards, medical schools should be more, not less, vigilant.
