On the Recent Flare-up of Scandal in the University/Pharma Interaction

Margaret Soltan, a professor of English at George Washington University writes on her blog, University Diaries:

The most important thing University Diaries does is track influences and trends within universities that threaten their integrity. UD has never seen anything as destructive to the ethos of the American university as she has seen here, in the relationship between medical research professors and the drug industry. It represents a species of cruelty to the most vulnerable among us that she never thought she’d see inside our schools.
