This article describes the role of power in the world of biomedical research. On the basis of some examples, I intend to demonstrate the influence of power, or its misuse, on PhD students and supervisors, and how this may have a negative effect on the research of PhD students. I will then outline how the biomedical research field can prevent these practices, and how it can create a better and more inspiring atmosphere for young, enthusiastic and talented researchers.
