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?

Speakers

Dave Patterson, Professor of Computer Science, UC Berkeley
Robert Proctor, Professor of History, Stanford
Richard Zare, Professor & Chair of Chemistry, Stanford
