Stanford University schizophrenia researcher Adolf Pfefferbaum is fighting efforts by the university to oust him after he quit his post at a university-affiliated hospital. It's a clash between old customs and new economic exigencies, and the outcome could affect how the university adjusts to the changing health care system. Pfefferbaum has won a hearing before the university's highest decision-making body, the faculty Advisory Board, although a decision is not expected before the end of the year.
