Opening up to precompetitive collaboration

Sci Transl Med. 2010 Oct 6;2(52):52cm26. doi: 10.1126/scitranslmed.3001515.

Abstract

In order to enhance biomedical research and development efficiency and innovation, nontraditional research collaborations have emerged that feature the sharing of information, resources, and capabilities. Although many of these so-called precompetitive collaborations are in the field of oncology, the lessons they offer are broadly applicable to other subfields of translational medicine.
