Critical Commentary

AO: This 2017 article by Kris Peterson and Morenike Folayan studies a research alliance to understand why three trial arms prematurely closed while another was refused approval from the relevant institutional review board. The paper touches on the power and politics of global public-private partnerships and the forms of scientific knowledge (located in African countries) that get left behind in the process.
