ICTR CONNECTIONS December, 2012
1 2 Einstein-Montefiore Institute for Clinical and Translational Research ICTR CONNECTIONS December, 2012 Innovation in Healthcare 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.

To apply, go to: http://www.einstein.yu.edu/centers/ictr/careerdevelopment/award.aspx 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: http://ctscweb8.ctsc.med.cornell. edu/InnovationCourse/home.cfm Happy holidays & best wishes for the new year!
