A number of studies have shown that engaging in scientific teams has the potential of boosting the impact of the research results independently of the field.

However, the way scientists engage in such collaborations is affected by many factors including gender and funding. In this talk I will discuss how these two factors affect collaboration patterns using results derived form two studies: a gender study of scientists in top US universities in different fields of science and a study of top-performing scientists across continents and scientific fields.
