"Among the goals of the National Institutes of Health CTSA awards are to accelerate bench to bedside discoveries into patient care, as well as to develop the infrastructure to support ongoing collaborative efforts in biomedical research," said Dr. Christian Herzog, Managing Director at Collexis. "The Collexis CTSA Expert Platform will allow participants to achieve these important goals by matching basic researchers and clinical scientists within organizations, and across multiple awarded institutions."

The new offering gives CTSA users a unique competitive advantage. It allows a researcher to identify partners from their organization and across the CTSA Consortia on any biomedical research topic(s). The platform automatically recommends collaborators from other institutions based on multiple areas of common research interests. Finally, the system will track and identify collaboration patterns among CTSA consortia members, allowing Collexis to give clients and NIH more information about how researchers work together and signaling ways that NIH can improve the CTSA program.

The Collexis Expert Platform approach to profiling life science researchers has become the standard with research intensive institutions. Current clients include Johns Hopkins, the National Institutes of Health, University of Michigan, Oregon Health Sciences University, The Medical College of Georgia, The University of Miami, the University of South Carolina, and over 25 more leading medical research institutions.

About Collexis Holdings, Inc.

Collexis Holdings, Inc., a leading developer of semantic search and knowledge discovery software is headquartered in Columbia, South Carolina (USA) with operations in Cincinnati, Ohio and Cologne, Germany. Collexis now offers the world's first pre-populated scientific social network for life science researchers, www.biomedexperts.com. Collexis' proprietary technology builds conceptual profiles of text, called Fingerprints, from documents, Websites, emails and other digitized content and matches them with a comprehensive list of pre-defined "fingerprinted" concepts to make research results more relevant and efficient. This matching of concepts eliminates the ambiguity and lack of priority associated with word searches. The results are often described as "finding needles in many haystacks."

Collexis' current clients in the public, private and academic sectors include the Mayo Clinic; Johns Hopkins University; Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, the University of California, San Francisco; the University of South Carolina; Erasmus University Library; Bristol-Myers Squibb; Lockheed Martin; the World Health Organization; Wellcome Trust; the National Institutes of Health; and the U.S. Department of Defense.
