Who's Funding That Research?

Need a quick way to check on an expert's direct or indirect affiliations with industry? In a casual romp through the excellent materials at The Virtual Chase on Evaluating the Quality of Information on the Internet, we have stumbled on the Center for Science in the Public Interest's Integrity in Science Database. Enter an expert's last name (or the name of a topic, university, or company), and you'll get information on research involving corporate funding. We've put a link to the site on our desktop.
