AbstractThe article discusses some of the problems that have arisen in recent years as the border separating the academic world, with its ideals of autonomy, disinterestedness and truth, from the commercial world has become blurred. The author discusses how this trend of greater privitization and commercialization of academic center has impacted the standards of science, research and teaching in Eastern Europe. As universities begin to rely on commercial funding of clinical research rather than public funding, conflicts of interest arise that threaten to undermine improvements in public health which hold the greatest promise for meeting the expectations of better health and longer lives for everyone.
