COLUMBIA, S.C., March 3 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Collexis Holdings Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CLXS), a leading developer of semantic search and knowledge discovery software, announced today the launch of the world's first CTSA Experts Platform drawing on the research profiles of 38 institutions and their more than 60,000 life science researchers. The platform is available to Collexis clients who are also winners of the Clinical Translational Science Awards (CTSA's) from the National Institutes of Health. Institutions that are subscribers to the service will be able to search, rank, and visualize expert profiles from all 38 CTSA institutions.
"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.

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." Through this novel
approach, Collexis can build unique applications to search, index and
aggregate information as well as prioritize, trend and predict data based on
sources in multiple industries without the limitations of language or dialect.
