Bursting the Biomedical Bubble

A new report from NESTA argues that UK policy needs to shift dramatically away from the existing model of support for biomedical research which is dominated by big pharmaceutical industry towards research into social and non-traditional health solutions.

It argues that this approach will generate balance in research but would require significant political will to “tackle the power and influence of the biomedical community in shaping research priorities and the allocation of resources.”
