Conflict Vitae

This is a statement of my financial relationships with people and organizations that have either provided funds directly to me or my research programs. This statement reflects my best and honest effort to reveal all potential financial conflicts of interest. While I strive to be free of any bias in my work, I leave it to each reader to judge the relevance of any possible conflict.

This approach to full disclosure was suggested by GD Rubenfeld in "The conflict vitae: a CV for the new millennium", The Lancet (2007).

The following statement reflects all activity from 2005 onward to the update date below.
