Harvard flunks an accreditation because of drug co. ties. Pfizer intimidates protestiers
by various media Friday, Mar. 06, 2009 at 7:48 AM

more on the nation's most CIA connected, most animal abusing, most war invested university

Harvard Med. School has received an F from an accreditation board because it does not reveal the conflict of interest among faculty
members, many of whom are paid by multinational pharmaceutical companies.
Harvard is the largest recipient of stolen tax $ for
vivisection, receiving 300 million a year or more
to continue to inflict pain on animals caged in
underground labs... animals from primates to mice.
Harvard is heavily involved with the CIA and
has a large endowment invested in war profiteering
and animal murder.


When Harvard med students engaged in a protest, a Pfizer employee
took all their pictures with a cellphone.



Senator Grassley (an enemy of Iowa pigs and cows, chickens and turkeys)

announced he would investigate the matter.



Pfizer sent a response. Pfizer is the world's largest pharmaceutical

company, and incinerates a truckload of animals daily at just one

of its research facilities in Connecticut. Pfizer researchers drowned

a dog in a washing machine in a lab in Michigan which has been shut down.

Charles Grassley
Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) continues with his campaign to address pharma influence in medicine, this time with a letter to Pfizer asking about its financial relationship with doctors at Harvard Medical School. The letter follows on intensifying protests among medical students, many of whom object to what they see as excessively close ties between the school and industry.

In the letter, Grassley asks Pfizer to provide a detailed accounting of payments or any other benefits the company might have given to 149 Harvard faculty members mentioned in a recent New York Times article, as well as any other unreported Harvard physicians who might have gotten paid by Pfizer. The article Grassley mentions discusses how students at Harvard have started questioning the school's overall financial ties to the drug business.

The plot thickened yesterday when, as mentioned in the Times article, a Pfizer employee took cellphone pictures of students protesting over faculty drug industry relationships. Grassley, who isn't having any of this either, is also asking Pfizer to send any "emails, faxes, letters, and photos regarding Harvard medical students demonstrating and/or agitating against pharmaceutical influence in medicine." (What does Pfizer intend to do with the photos--bar the students from getting fat pharma consulting contracts when they graduate?)
