Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The purpose of the study was to define the major Neuroscience research groups at the Karolinska Institute (KI) and international companies and also to analyse these actors according to established network theory. This was done through interviews and data collection such as publications and financial status for the research groups, drug pipeline, therapeutic area and financial status for the companies. The results were fifteen research groups involved in different areas of neuroscience and organised into different departments. For the companies, ten international pharmaceutical companies were chosen. The network theory was focusing on the research groups. Result regarding collaborations within KI, between companies and with other universities and institutes was analysed. The outcome was two diagrams containing the relationships between the chosen groups and companies. There was a tendency for the pre-clinical research groups to collaborate more with each other while the more clinical research groups tend to collaborate more with other groups in the same field.
