UM: Sidney Gilman

The New York Times profiled Sidney Gilman, the University of Michigan Medical School professor who’s at the heart of a massive insider trading scandal involving SAC Capital. ”Colleagues now say Dr. Gilman’s story is a reminder of the corrupting influence of money. The University of Michigan, where he was a professor for decades, has erased any trace of him on its Web sites, and is now reviewing its consulting policy for employees, a spokesman said. The case also turns the spotlight back onto the finance world’s expert networks, which match sources in academia and at publicly traded companies — like Dr. Gilman — with traders at hedge funds and financial firms.” Gilman is cooperating with authorities to avoid being charged, according to the report.
