In this episode:00:53 How virtual meetings can limit creative ideasIn April, we heard how a team investigated whether switching from face-to-face to virtual meetings came at a cost to creativity.

The project, called the mRNA vaccine technology transfer hub, aims to create independent vaccine hubs that could supply the global south, and take on the giants of the pharmaceutical industry in the process. But the road ahead is long - the challenges are co...

We also know that money has influence in the scientific literature - which is why w e have a zero tolerance policy for financial conflicts of interest in our educational content. Where do journal editors fit into this? The first step into investigating that is to find out if journal editors receive payments from pharma and device companies - and new research, published on bmj.co m doe...
