Iran Press/Iran news: In an interview with Iran Press on Wednesday on the sidelines of the 6th 'international intensive care congress' in Tehran, professor Jan Bakker, chief editor of 'critical care journal' said: "What I see as the editor of journal of critical care and Razi [Razi International Medical Centre] is a very valued editorial board member, the quality of the research that we get to be published in my journal that is quite good. I mean when you compare it to other parts of the world is not bad at all. It’s a good standard and so I think there is good progression [good progress] in research in Iran."

Commenting further on Iranian medical research and international collaboration in research in medicine, professor Jan Bakker said: "I would like to have a more open relationship but I mean because of all the international problems that is very complicated, I would love to have colleagues from the United State to come and participate in the courses that we do, but with all the international troubles, that is a problem and that is sad, because science should be without borders, to be honest."
