The Role of Global Collaborations in Translational Research

In a recent perspective EATRIS addresses the role of global collaborations in preclinical translation in search of system-wide productivity gains.  Given the increasing complexity of the biomedical innovation pipeline, collaboration across organizational, sectoral and national boundaries is an increasingly important means of leveraging resources and mitigating risk. By better sharing the costs and risks of developing the tools that help us make better drugs, we can improve the cost effectiveness of R&D without sacrificing competitiveness, thereby delivering more value to patients and payors.
