Latest research shows Canada’s decision to fund only one large national Lyme research conglomerate goes against creation of new ideas.
[CanLyme Note: Even worse is that the 4 million tax payer dollars given to the conglomerate, Canadian Lyme Disease Research Network (CLyDRN), is now controlled by members of the anti-science/ethics private group the Association of Medical Microbiology and Infectious Disease of Canada (AMMI) which is the puppet arm of the highly controversial Infectious Disease Society of America (IDSA). Most of the CLyDRN group are already government salaried employees so this was just government funding government researchers controlled by private interests. Highly unethical, and it insures the status quo of the past 4 decades. These closed door private groups endorse and impose their guidelines on the unsuspecting medial community by controlling medical publications, medical research, medical education, and Public Health officers while being heavily influenced by the mega for-profit medical ‘industry’. The USA National Academy of Sciences’ division, the Institute of Medicine, use the IDSA guidelines as an example of how NOT to write guidelines because they meet no standards of ethics or scientific credibility. The Public Health Agency of Canada has publicly endorsed the IDSA for many years and AMMI members are well placed within PHAC to ensure the control continues. Shameful.]

“Here we analyse more than 65 million papers, patents and software products that span the period 1954–2014, and demonstrate that across this period smaller teams have tended to disrupt science and technology with new ideas and opportunities, whereas larger teams have tended to develop existing ones.”
“These results demonstrate that both small and large teams are essential to a flourishing ecology of science and technology, and suggest that, to achieve this, science policies should aim to support a diversity of team sizes.”
