How do I find research collaborators?
Use a variety of search tools to find collaborators at the University of Virginia and beyond.
To find University of Virginia collaborators:
- Use the UVa Research Faculty Directory to find faculty in the biomedical sciences. Two searches are available: 1) find faculty affiliated with the Biomedical Sciences Graduate Programs by keyword or discipline and, 2) search all biomedical research faculty by keyword, department, or name.
- Use Oscar, a website for scholarship, creativity and research at UVa. Oscar combines news stories, research projects, organization information and profiles from alumni, graduates, undergraduates, faculty and staff.
To find other collaborators:
Specialized search tools such as Web of Science and GoPubMed can help identify authors on a topic as possible collaborators.
