Through a UofL-specific, searchable site, the KNODE platform helps individual researchers, academic institutions and companies share scientific knowledge, particularly in the biomedical field.
“KNODE provides us a single, searchable gateway to our world-class life sciences faculty and researchers for collaborators in both industry and academia,” said William Pierce, UofL’s executive vice president for research and innovation. “It can really open doors for scientific collaboration.”
“We are excited to be working with the University of Louisville to further develop and align KNODE’s technology platform with the goals of the academic research community,” said David Steinberg, KNODE’s acting chief executive officer and partner at Boston-based PureTech Ventures. “There is a significant need to automate and streamline the curation of scientific content to reduce administrative burden, while also making these experts searchable and accessible in a new and unique way. The response to the early capabilities of the system has been enthusiastic.”
