From 2003: " KGN has received travel sponsorship and honorariums from GlaxoSmithKline, the manufacturer of zanamivir, and Roche, which makes oseltamivir, for consultancy and speaking at international respiratory and infectious diseases symposiums. His research group has received research funding from GlaxoSmithKline and Roche to participate in multicentre trials of neuraminidase inhibitors; Berna Biotech and Chiron for trials of flu vaccines; and Wyeth for work on the epidemiology of flu in young children. KGN was a founder member and vice chairman of the European Scientific Working Group on Influenza (ESWI), a group of European scientists promoting the study of flu. ESWI is supported by the vaccine manufacturers, Roche and GlaxoSmithKline, but is scientifically independent."
