New Site Aims to Connect Potential Collaborators


The National Institutes of Health's National Center for Research Resources-sponsored Clinical and Translational Science Awards Consortium has launched a new Web site where potential collaborators can connect. Users of the new Collaboration Opportunities Web site have the opportunity to both post and respond to specific requests for collaborators, according to the NIH Office of Extramural Research's blog, the Extramural Nexus. "Those who post and respond do not need to be affiliated with a CTSA institution," NIH says, adding that "postings can be for either developing projects or for more established projects in need of collaborators." Investigators who wish to be notified when projects are posted are asked to subscribe to CTSA's CollabOppNotice listserv, here.
