Description

A Tacoma News Tribune investigation revealed that "at least 133 University of Washington researchers have financial ties to corporations with a stake in the outcome of their research, and the number of researchers with conflicts is growing. Many receive lucrative consulting contracts from companies with a stake in their university research, while other earn royalties or own company stock. Though the university claims the outside income of most researchers is minimal, some earn tens of thousands of dollars on the side from corporate sponsors.Though the university claims to have a tough conflicts-of-interest policy, the investigation found UW almost never says 'no' to researchers' conflicts of interest."
