ReSEARCH Connect enables IU School of Medicine 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. ReSEARCH Connect is an essential mechanism in promoting Indiana University School of Medicine and its clinical partner Indiana University Health as international leaders in biomedical research and patient care.

Which researchers are included in ReSEARCH Connect?

IU School of Medicine’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.

I’m currently not included in ReSEARCH Connect. How can I be added?

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 Elsevier, new profiles (and updates such as investigator photos) can be added daily, followed by a quarterly comprehensive review to completely disambiguate the new researcher from investigators with similar names within the Scopus publications database.

If I would like a demonstration of ReSEARCH Connect, who should I contact?

Send an email to entitled “IUSM ReSEARCH Connect Demo” and indicate whether the request is for an individual or a group. Dean’s Office staff will be in contact to arrange a presentation.
