In an effort to highlight clinical trials expertise at USC, SC CTSI has launched a new feature to our local expert finder tool, USC Health Sciences Profiles. Now it is easy to discover faculty members and postdoctoral scholars in the health sciences who are involved in active clinical trials.
Researchers’ public profile pages automatically list their active clinical trials – see the example profile of Dr. Anne Louise Peters (image 1).
Search: You can also search on the USC Profiles homepage (image 2). Check the “Clinical Trials” button and select "Search" to see all experts with active clinical trials. You can refine your search by adding keywords, names, schools, departments, etc.
“We are among the first to integrate clinical trials expertise into a research networking tool. We hope that this will not only make it easier to identify clinical trials experts locally, but also, in the long term, aid nationally in the acceleration of multi-site trials,” said Katja Reuter, PhD, Director of Digital Strategy at SC CTSI who is leading the strategic development and implementation of the tool.
Contact the SC CTSI team at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions or ideas on how to further improve the tool.
About USC Health Sciences Profiles: Designed to promote interdisciplinary research and collaboration, the tool provides a quick search to discover people, research expertise, and networks of co-authors and related authors who have published on similar research topics. While some of the data are updated automatically (publications, clinical trials, HR information), users can customize their own profile by adding a research description, web links, videos, social media activity, and more. The tool currently includes more than 3000 profiles representing faculty, postdocs, and clinical research coordinators in the health sciences. http://profiles.sc-ctsi.org/search/
