RESEARCH STRATEGY

We began our investigation with an inquiry into articles located in medical and scientific databases (e.g., PubMed, ScienceOpen, and SciCurve) to identify individuals with peer-reviewed papers. We cross-checked that data with each individual's LinkedIn profile to ensure they met the specified research criteria. We included Individuals on this list based on authorship of a peer-reviewed publication, presentations at large scientific conferences, professional network size (which we measured by proxy through social media follower data), or a leadership role in a prominent multiomics-related organization.
