I'm killing a few minutes between a screening and a luncheon interview by perusing the magazine shelves at Tower Records when the cover of Maxim doesn't so much catch my eye as pull it out of its socket, as in an old Krazy Kat cartoon.

DR. ALESSIO FASANO once publicly disclosed his research results without first ensuring that the University of Maryland, Baltimore, where he works, had secured the commercial rights. Scolded by a university technology manager, he altered his habits. These days, balancing the interests of private companies that provide a growing amount of income to academic institutions with ethical obligations is making life much more complex for university leaders and researchers such as Fasano. Fasano, 48, heads the university's Center for Celiac Research and is also chief scientific officer of Alba Therapeutics Corp.
