Talking to academia issues?
I am working with some people at my University and they are having issues with me having implants that are not regulated even though it has about 2 steps of separation from the projects I am working with them on.
What is a good way to talk to people in the academic world about this stuff? I can't keep it a secret because I am pretty public online already about it and I don't want them to be caught in a weird situation. But when I mention it to people they shy away from helping me with these other projects. They worry that if I have an implant go bad and it somehow gets some press it could be called into question with a heading like "Student doing research under PhD has implant infection". Of course they do not want anything like that happening, and I also don't want anything like that to happen.
Does anyone else do work at a university and have issues? What about people working on labs or any other bio-medical situation?
