University of Pennsylvania Prof to Celltex: ‘I am Spartacus’

a couple of excerpts: but be sure to read the whole article here

Update: Matt McGeachy says to Bosk and Celltex, “No, I’m Spartacus.” His letter to the FDA is here. McGeachy writes, “”Normally I hold bullies in contempt, but in this case the stakes are too high: academic freedom, public trust, and the public health warrant a response from anyone who cares about this stuff. I don’t look kindly on corporations telling universities – and the government – what to do.”
