Monitoring, Exposing, and Opposing Conflicts
The Integrity in Science (ISS) Project combats corporate influence on science and science-based public policy. We scrutinize more than 200 science-based federal advisory committees for undisclosed conflicts of interest, monitor the media and scientific literature for failure to disclose, and encourage the adoption of strong disclosure policies. ISS publishes the weekly Integrity in Science Watch e-Newsletter and maintains an open database of public records of scientists' ties to industry.

Do your own conflict of interest research in our database of over 4,000
scientists. You should know that the database is not comprehensive and does not imply that anyone acted improperly or the results of industry-funded activities are invalid. Likewise, exclusion from the database should not be interpreted as the absence of corporate ties.
You should consider the listed information as a complement to other information, and you are urged to independently verify all information. The accuracy of the list cannot be guaranteed because CSPI cannot independently verify all citations. However, we only use usually reliable sources, such as scholarly publications, news articles, résumés, industry bulletins, federal agencies, corporate and university websites, conference programs, and direct contacts. Listings do not generally include connections to non-profit entities. Some information came from undated documents or résumés. In such cases, entries list the date CSPI received that information. Whenever available, we have disclosed the specific amount of funding. We welcome any corrections as well as additional relevant information.
