Hints for Collaboration

Hints for finding collaborators at Einstein


  1. There are a number of different web pages which are useful, sometimes with overlapping options.   From most Einstein web pages you can search with a given keyword using the search bar in the upper right corner.   Below is a list of web pages that can help you find potential collaborators. 
  1. Einstein Research page:http://www.einstein.yu.edu/research/ 
    1. There is a link to the various shared facilities and cores in the upper left corner. 
    1. In the lower middle under Investigator Resources there are links to pilot funding opportunities, the Innovative Collaboration Tool, and the Reagent and Equipment exchange. 
    1. The Pilot Funding Opportunities currently has funding for Catalytic Seed Grants supported by the Institute for Clinical and Translational Research with rolling submission and reviewed within 2 – 3 weeks of submission. 
    1. The Innovative Collaboration Tool takes you to the Einstein Research Profiles page (http://www.experts.scival.com/einstein/ ), which allows you to search via Investigator and Keyword, providing you with a list of researchers who have publications and/or grants relevant to the search term.  There are further links then with more detailed information on those researchers as well as the ability to refine the search. 
    1. The Reagent and Equipment exchange uses a simple login you can register for which then allow emails to be sent requesting or offering reagents/equipment. 
    1. Under More Investigator Resources at the bottom are additional links, especially to the Institute for Clinical and Translational Research (http://www.einstein.yu.edu/centers/ictr/services/) . 
  1. Einstein Collaboration Zone page (http://www.einstein.yu.edu/research/collaboration-zone/):  

There are links to the Research Profiles and Reagent Exchange pages mentioned above 

There is a link to lists of Rare Disease collaborators 

There is a link to the SciVal funding search site, which allows you to search for grant opportunities as well as funded grants in a number of countries. 

  1. Faculty Interactions Committee (FICOMM) web site (https://www.einstein.yu.edu/research/faculty-interaction-committee/).  This document is here as well as other information on upcoming events sponsored by FICOMM such as SEEDs.  SEEDS for Collaboration are monthly brief 5 minute research presentations by three faculty followed by time for conversation along with wine and cheese. 
  1. Pubmed (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed) with keyword and either 10461 or 10467.  This will identify papers with corresponding authors who are at Einstein or Montefiore, respectively. 
  2. Calendar of Academic Events (http://www.einstein.yu.edu/calendars).  It provides a daily listing of advertised seminars, Grand Rounds,and other events.  Upcoming events are also listed on the bottom right of the Einstein home page (http://www.einstein.yu.edu/) .  Also on the bottom right of the Einstein home page in the grey section is a Research heading with links to the Collaboration Zone and Scientific Resources (which links to the Shared Facilities web site described below). 
  1. Office of Grant Support (https://www.einstein.yu.edu/administration/grant-support/ ) can provide information regarding funding opportunities and guidance regarding putting together a grant proposal. 
  1. Shared Facilities & Cores web site (http://www.einstein.yu.edu/research/shared-facilities/) provides links to the different facilities available with specialized skills and equipment that can collaborate with you on a fee basis.  Also present are a series of links in the upper left corner of that page to other potentially useful information.  In particular, for those writing grants, the Investigator Resources link (http://www.einstein.yu.edu/research/shared-facilities/investigator-resources/) provides a very helpful set of Word documents describing each facility that can be put into a grant proposal. 

We welcome additional suggestions and ideas for ways to form new collaborations that we can add to this list. Please contact Jeff Segall (jeffrey.segall@einstein.yu.edu) with suggestions or corrections.
