Sergio Sismondo holds fellowship at Harvard

For 2011-12, Sergio Sismondo will hold a Network Fellowship at Harvard University’s Safra Center for Ethics. He has been working to detail the key mechanisms by which pharmaceutical companies establish dominance over particular areas of medical knowledge. He has been looking at, for example, the ghosting of articles for medical science journals and at drug companies' recruitment and management of physicians to serve as "key opinion leaders". In his project at the Safra Center, he is studying how people justify their work to manage medical knowledge, as well as at how physicians and researchers justify their involvement with the drug industry.
