About ReSEARCH Connect

What is ReSEARCH Connect?

IUSM ReSEARCH Connect enables IUSM researchers to identify new funding opportunities and potential collaborators within academia, industry, and the broader health sciences community. This resource helps investigators develop “bench-to-bedside” studies and foster novel areas of investigation, leading to strong translational and clinical applications.

IUSM ReSEARCH Connect is an essential mechanism in promoting Indiana University and its clinical partner Indiana University Health as international leaders in biomedical research and patient care.

Which researchers are included in ReSEARCH Connect?

The school’s goal is to host a profile for every active faculty researcher.  Because the software uses the text of publications to identify expertise, an investigator who has not yet published will not benefit.  As active researchers are recruited, requesting a ReSEARCH Connect profile should be one of the first items on a department’s new hire checklist. 

Each department is responsible for nominating active faculty researchers.  Contact your department’s administrative or research staff to request a profile.  They will authorize the request by submitting an email to entitled “IUSM ReSEARCH Connect Profile” and containing the following information:  last name, first name, middle initial, department, division/section, job title, and email address.  Per the school’s maintenance contract with SciVal, new profiles (and updates such as investigator photos) will be submitted on a quarterly basis.
