Why are people taken in by pseudoscience and the accompanying “scientific” jargon that gives a false impression claims are backed by laboratory research and facts? Why have scientists like me gone from being viewed as god-like, having put mankind on the moon, to nimrods who’re in the pocket of big pharma?

Now, as we approach the single IRB mandate, I wanted to share a little bit about the efforts that I was fortunate to lead and participate in for the benefit of all the organizations not only contemplating this step, but being required to implement it at this juncture. I can only hope this brief effort to capitulate our successes and failures will lead you and your organization to even grander aspirations and achievements than my own. Read more
