Five factors leading to a tight-knit clinical research industry

The terms tight-knit and close-knit are used to describe a group of people who care about each other and who are very friendly with each other or as a group held tightly together by social or cultural ties.  Within the clinical research community, we say it is a “small world” because someone usually knows someone else in another company or at another research institution.  People work for years collaborating across the aisles of academia, government, and industry while often moving from one to another, all the while creating close working relationships within the community.
