The Corruption of Sid Gilman
"It's essential that the University of Michigan and other universities have a voice and interact in the business world through partnerships, collaborations, and other efforts," emails U-M Health System spokesperson Pete Barkey. "Such interaction allows business to tap into the knowledge of leading academicians and researchers, and it is part of the university's mission to engage in such an exchange of ideas."
Tap into Gilman's knowledge the business world certainly did. But not in the way the university intended.
Gilman's next outside work is scheduled to be testifying as a "cooperating witness" for the prosecution in the largest insider trading case ever brought by the federal government.
He's doing so to avoid spending the rest of his golden years in prison.
