Should "who was not involved in researching the new paper" be "who was not involved in the research"? Because everyone, including you and I, read the new paper would be involved in researching the paper - reading it, delving into it and finding its advantage and disadvantage...that is, we are researching the new paper - but we are not involved in the research which includes designing, making experiments and writing the paper etc..


----------------
Behavioral and social sciences professor and director of Brown University’s Mindfulness Center Eric Loucks, who was not involved in researching the new paper, agrees there are multiple definitions of mindfulness. But it is the trickiness in bringing a rich spiritual concept into a standardized framework for testing and advising patients that he feels might be tough to tackle.

Yes, it means he (Professor Loucks) was not involved in the research. However, changing the phrase in bold does not make sense to me.
