The Triple Helix: University, Government and Industry Relationships in the Life Sciences

This working paper, authored by leading experts Professors David Blumenthal, Eric Campbell, and Greg Koski of Harvard University, focuses on the implications for university, government, and industry relationships. In particular, the paper pays special attention to this issue in the context of emerging drug discovery and development practices in the pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries.

Both Congress and the National Institutes of Health have been actively engaged in reviewing conflict of interest policies for government researchers. Sponsored by the Kauffman Foundation, The Future of the Triple Helix: Finding the Balance Among Government, Industry and Academic Research Relationships was presented at the AEI-Brookings Joint Center for Regulatory Studies symposium held Thursday, June 10, 2004.
