Collexis and Health Sciences South Carolina Partner

Aug 26, 2008

Collexis Holdings Inc., a developer of semantic search and knowledge discovery software, announced that it has partnered with Health Sciences South Carolina (HSSC) to launch a virtual knowledge directory of health science research being conducted across the state by HSSC partner institutions. HSSC is a statewide research collaborative composed of South Carolina’s three research universities and three largest health systems that conduct collaborative biomedical research to improve health status, education, workforce development, and economic wellbeing for all South Carolinians. With the Collexis Holdings interface, a medical topic or researcher can be searched through the HSSC website. Also experts who specialize in different research areas (like biologists and chemists studying cancer) can be identified to build teams necessary to address complex challenges in health research.
