With some notable exceptions, such as Davis (1996), Elston (1994) and Gabe and Bury (1996), few writers in medical sociology have concerned themselves with medical science or scientists working in medical fields other than prescribing doctors. Curiously, research in medical sociology is not often concerned with medicines themselves. This may be due to the apparently limited cross-fertilisation between the fields of medical sociology and sociology of science. Like many of the other contributors to this monograph, I aim to offer some advancement in this respect.
