Harvard Professor Didn't Disclose Corporate Tie

October 5, 2015

Calestous Juma, a Harvard University professor who is an international development expert, wrote a policy paper last year in support of genetically modified organisms without disclosing the role of Monsanto in the work, The Boston Globe reported. Emails obtained by the Globe show that that Monsanto suggested the topic of the paper, connected Juma with a publicist who promoted the paper and suggested the headline for the work. Juma noted that he had not been paid by Monsanto, and said he didn't intend to do anything wrong but may have used "bad judgment."
