University of Chicago Press

This chapter discusses the conflict between the pursuit of profits and scientific principles, focusing on the case of the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) which was considered the center of the biotechnology industry boom. It highlights problems related to business-based scandals in academic science, conflicts of commitment, restraints on publication, and proper behavior in the management and conduct of research connecting academe and industry. This chapter discusses the opinion of Lisa Bero, professor of clinical pharmacy at UCSF and chair of the Chancellor's Advisory Committee on Conflict of Interest, on these issues.
