Suneel D. Kamath, MD, of the Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Institute in Cleveland, Ohio, spoke with the editorial team of the journal ONCOLOGY® about his published manuscript titled, ‘Association of Financial Conflicts of Interest With Academic Productivity Among Junior Faculty in Hematology and Oncology.’

Suneel and colleagues set out to determine how financial conflicts of interest could be used as a surrogate for the trajectory of early-career oncologists and junior faculty at academic institutions. He touched on how understanding relationships between clinicians and industry is important for both drug development as well as the early academic productivity of individual investigators.
