Why We Are Doing It

Impactful research depends on collaboration between investigators with unique expertise, different backgrounds and different strengths in solving a problem and/or conducting research. Palmetto Profiles provides tools to help investigators find potential collaborators or mentors and enables the discovery of research expertise at HSSC member organizations. It provides new ways to create online bios and enhance the visibility of faculty on search engines. It also includes several visualization tools to browse networks of collaborators, wordclouds, timelines, and many other tools that facilitate the discovery of research networks and team formation.
