    Default Expelled Researcher Sets Up 'New Cochrane'

    Bryan Hubbard
    January 17 2019


    Once the hallmark of independent medical research, the Cochrane Collaboration has accepted a grant of over £1m from the Bill Gates Foundation and summarily dismissed its most outspoken researcher, Peter C Gotzsche

    It's a shame to see the original collaboration descend into privatization and capitalism. I stand behind Gøtzsche100% and hope he finds the funding to begin anew.
