New Website Lists Scientists Linked to Industry

from [email protected]

The Center for Science in the Public Interest has posted on the Internet a database of over 1,100 professors and scientists who consult for or have other affiliations with chemical, gas, oil, food, drug, and other companies. The web site also provides partial information about nonprofit and professional organizations that receive industry funding. Both parts of the database will be regularly expanded in the future.

The well-documented database is designed for activists, journalists, policy makers, and others who are concerned about potential conflicts of interest. The database is part of CSPI's Integrity in Science project, one purpose of which is to encourage greater public disclosure of corporate sponsorship of science.

For further information, or to contribute to the database, contact

Ron Collins, [email protected], or 202-332-9110, ext. 322, or CSPI, Suite 300,
1875 Connecticut Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20009.
