Recently I presented a new research project on clinical trial investigators and their collaborative relations at this year’s Workshop on Medical Innovation in Reykjavik, Iceland. The objective of this project is to shed some light on the development of collaborative relations among trial investigators and to find out more about their backgrounds, such as their institutional backgrounds and their knowledge bases. The project is joint work with Maureen McKelvey (University of Gothenburg) and Pablo D’Este (INGENIO).
