AP follows up on Suppes/UMissouri flap

ALAN SCHER ZAGIER has a piece on the Galen Suppes matter.

There are quotes from Joshua Powers, an Indiana State University professor who studies tech transfer.

The article ended:

Suppes' partner, Sutterlin, grew frustrated with the impasse and relocated their startup company to Tuscaloosa, Ala. Suppes remains in Missouri, continuing his teaching and research.
Suppes said the problem runs deeper than a single dispute between the university and a disenchanted professor. At a time when the university has imposed a hiring freeze and is considering job cuts, he suggests the flap is causing some colleagues to reassess their efforts to bring research to market.
"The only thing (Missouri) is interested in," he said, "is going out to grab the easy money."
