Description

The series examined the role and influence that drug company funding plays in medical research done at Texas' public medical schools. It examined the financial ties between the schools and pharmaceutical companies and between the top researchers and those companies. A major theme of the findings was that the drug companies in many cases are using the schools--and their reputations--to help market drugs that are now being blamed for causing medical and psychological harm to the patients taking them.
