Matchmaker will also generate charts of the most common study sections, institutes/centers and activity codes from the list.
Learn more about collaboration and team science
In an effort to learn more about collaboration, L. Michelle Bennett and Howard Gadlin interviewed members of successful and highly productive research teams, as well as members of teams that did not meet their goals or disbanded due to conflict. This article explores the analysis and findings from those interviews.
L. Michelle Bennett, Howard Gadlin and Christophe Marchand updated the Field Guide to enhance the original and to provide additional information and insights gleaned from eight years of working with and learning from teams. This is a valuable resource for scientists participating in or leading research teams.
