Visualizing the development of an ecosystem: Pathways to a Drug

In a joint work with Ozgur Dedehayir we went on to explore how we could visualize the emergence of an ecosystem. Ozgur had done excellent qualitative work on mapping the history of the development of a drug Taxol and I contributed on quantitative metrics, namely patent and publication data. This ended up being an npartite network that shows the whole network from the emergence phase of the drug.

The pre-print of the article Pathways to a drug: A mixed methods analysis of emergence accepted to the International Journal of Innovation Management (IJIM).

Next steps would be to make the visual to show temporal changes and making sure if we could better match the qualitative data with the quantitative data.
