Your topic is: “The relationship between funding sources and researchers: What is the potential impact on public health nutrition?”
Relevant questions: Who wins, who loses? Who pays the economic costs? Who pays the public health price? Is this ‘fair’? Are there disparities in outcomes (i.e. are certain segments of the population potentially impacted more than others)? Why/how?
To maintain focus, you should pick a specific nutrition theme (e.g. obesity, diabetes, malnutrition, etc.) You may choose a specific company, tactic, or audience (if relevant) as long as you can find enough information to support your thoughts.
Any theme is acceptable, as long it has a relevant research-funder link to be investigated or argued. You’re not trying to convince me of anything, but you do have to make your well-thought-out opinion very clear.
You should look deeper than ‘should Coke sponsor obesity research’. How might the relationship between companies and universities, in addition to individual researchers, impact science or even policy?
Do links between companies and the government impact research/policy? How? Focus on the course and module learning objectives provided in the directions.
