In this project we focus how scientists in practice answer the question “What knowledge is worth pursuing?”. The purpose of this project is to investigate the practices of research design in biomedical experiments to understand how the economic, scientific, and medical are intertwined in research design. Here we wish to examine the economic as an important part of determining what questions can, and cannot, be addressed in subsequent experiments. My focus will be on the design of biomarker experiments in commercial and non-commercial settings.
The Trials of value project is a collaborative project with CF Helgesson.
