Eureka is already present in the virtual social space with its web site and associated sandbox, and on Facebook. While these activities are important, they encourage only sporadic and superficial interactions. We plan now to provide a tool useful operationally to identify within the Network possible sources for guidance, collaboration, knowledge and opportunities of any kind in the Translational Medicine space.
We have developed a proprietary software tool (iStudy), which is server/client based, platform agnostic and will be customized in order to contain all relevant expertise, know-how, technologies and resources within the Network. iStudy is much more than a simple repository or inventory, as it will be easily searchable across different data fields, thus allowing identification of resources for complex translational process.
