Researchers Are Forced to Work Remotely
Due to the spread of COVID-19, Harvard, among other research institutions, decided to close their research facilities for a few months. Without access to labs, students and faculty cannot meet research deadlines. At the same time, all industries are stretching their capabilities to work remotely. For researchers and scientists, this is a good time to read, analyze, prepare, and design experiments that may help with research once the facilities are up and running again.
Researchers need to be able to access scientific content in a timely fashion, from wherever they are. To capitalize on this open-ended period of remote working, researchers can use knowledge tools that are uniquely architected for science.
Knowledge Hub For Research Institutions
ResoluteAI’s Foundation platform allows researchers to seamlessly search for information on companies, clinical trials, patents, publications, grants, and technology transfer opportunities. All of these datasets are in one centralized hub so that they can be searched as if they’re single-source.
Using Foundation, researchers can discover overlapping research in publications from all over the world. In the area of immunosuppression, there is literature spanning medicine, biochemistry, and chemical engineering:
At the cross-section of genetics and immunosuppression lies the future of potential research in the area of genetic engineering.
As you can see from the data visualization, there are many publications that fall under the categories of immunosuppression and cancer. For researchers that are looking for ways to use immunosuppression therapy in other areas, a quick search in ResoluteAI’s Foundation datasets can lead to cancer-related research on immunosuppression methods.
An online knowledge hub is a must for researchers working remotely. A robust search tool that includes data visualization and analytics can help to open their minds, empowering them to mine information with interdisciplinary applications. When social distancing and quarantine is over, researchers will be able to parlay these software tools into their onsite laboratories and offices, having lost no research time while working from home.
