'Rather than an uncritical celebration of interdisciplinarity, the contributions to this volume shed light on how people and things actually collaborate and travel in and between different disciplines and domains. This book makes for great reading, particularly for those of us who the current veneration of "big data" medicine leaves wanting a more sober and fine-grained analysis of changing practices in health and medicine.' Barbara Prainsack, King's College London, UK
