Dell and Collexis Holdings, Inc., launched BioMedExperts--a social networking community that is intended to promote collaborative medical research and development. BioMedExperts will allow health care and life sciences professionals to connect and collaborate with each other, as well as conduct research by providing 1.4 million biomedical experts with 12 million pre-established network connections from more than 120 countries. The site also provides the ability to analyze all associated professional connections within the network and view scientific publications. As part of the initiative, Dell will provide computer hardware to power the Collexis-designed BioMedExperts. Dell will also provide marketing support for BioMedExperts, including co-branded marketing efforts and promotions at major life science research conferences.
