Pfizer Inc., Astra Zeneca PLC and Eli Lilly and Co. are among the major international drug companies signing seven-figure, multi-year umbrella agreements with schools such as New York University, Harvard and the University of California-San Francisco. The deals cover a range of research projects and offer campus scientists access to once-proprietary experimental drug compounds owned by the corporate labs. (AP Photo/Jeff Chiu)
