Panel Discussion
DOES CORPORATE FUNDING CORRUPT SCIENCE?
8:00 PM, March 2, 2012
Hewlett Teaching Center, Stanford

Some 65% of all research and development in the U.S. is funded by private interests. History shows that the corporate funding of scientific research can be problematic — the tobacco industry offers a potent example. When corporations fund science, is truth the ultimate goal, or is stockholder profit?
