CTSI Offers New Matchmaking Service: the Research Teambuilder

The CTSI is offering a new Matchmaking service, which can connect faculty members with established researchers who have obtained funding in their field. Your personalized Matchmaker report created by the CTSI is broken in to two sections: a funding climate report at the top and then a ranked listing of the top six research projects that most closely match the supplied text at the bottom. This information can be used to forge new research collaborations; recruit new faculty members; identify mentors for junior faculty members and students; and help faculty better understand the types of research projects that are already underway.
