Research
Einstein Research Profiles
and Grant Funding Searches
Einstein Research Profiles (ERP),
which provides easy access to
publications, grant information,
and collaborator networks, and
SciVal Funding, a tool that
delivers comprehensive access to
current funding opportunities
and award information, have
been updated. Both ERP and
SciVal Funding have
transitioned from the PubMed
platform to Scopus, the largest
database for peer-reviewed
publications, providing broader
coverage than PubMed. This
upgrade has resulted in the
addition of over 1,200 new
articles in investigators’ ERP.
Additionally, as ERP has been
refined, the ability to match
individual ERP to current grant
opportunities has improved.
In response to feedback from
investigators, SciVal funding had
been updated to capture funding
opportunities more closely tied to
investigators’ interests while
providing as many opportunities
as possible. In the most recent
automated email, over 1,000
investigators had matching
opportunities. Most of you have
received e-mails with recent
opportunities. Some faculty want
more, some want less—you can
set your preferences easily.

MENTORED CLINICAL AND TRANSLATIONAL
RESEARCH CAREER DEVELOPMENT AWARDS
Applications due: January 31st, 2013
These research CDAs provide support for junior faculty who
will devote the majority of their effort to clinical or translational
research and training for 2 to 3 years. To apply, go to:

In late October, the ICTR, along
with Cornell, Columbia, and
Rockefeller’s CTSAs co-sponsored
a two-day course, Translating
Science into Innovation in
Healthcare: How Industry and
Academia Together Can Create
Opportunity in a Time of Crisis.
Topics included transforming
ideas into marketable innovation,
creating new paradigms and
business models in healthcare,
lowering costs and maximizing
returns on investment, and
exploring the impact of new
technologies.
Great presentations from this
Symposium are available at:
