Cancer Research Uk Collaborations by Brendan Dawes

Commissioned by Someone for Cancer Research UK, a data visualisation created for the cover of CRUK's 2016 Research Annual, showing the the far-reaching collaboration between scientists all across the world fighting to beat cancer.

Each country is made up of dots, each of which represents another country they've collaborated with on a scientific paper. Lines then connect these collaborators, the thicker the line the more papers that have been collaborated on.
