Anthony is writing a multi-disciplinary research proposal on molecular treatments for breast cancer. He
would like to identify and contact potential collaborators and begin to exchange information regarding the

Identify potential funding opportunities:
Mary is the director of a large research center. She would like to visualize clusters of interests, techniques,
and areas of specialty amongst the researchers that are part of her center. She would like to use this
information to grow existing areas of strength and collaborative efforts and maximize ROI.

Tom is completing his BS in Biology. He wants to identify institutions with robust programs in his research
area of interest the genetic bases of neurodegenerative disorders.

Locate focused publication content:
Samantha is a faculty member at an university. She is looking for papers published by other scholars at her
institution on using advanced statistical methods to analyze research impact in the bioinformatics domain.

Asserble spedirized review panels:
David is a federal agency staff member. He needs to identify people who can serve on scientific review
panels. He wants to find people who work in specific areas, but wants to exclude people who have been
co-authors with the researchers whose proposals are under review.

Library administration or directors of core facilities want to align their strategic plan with the evolving
research needs of their clientele. Identifying growth areas of research through increasing publications,
focused areas of research, and grant dollars enables this task to become more evidence-based.

VIVO visualizations illustrate

who a researcher is already working

with on publications and grants.

This enables searchers to discover

relevant research information with

just a few clicks of a mouse!

VIVO is designed to connect and integrate information about grants, publications,

and people in one location. VIVO displays data about researchers, their

collaborators, their funding sources, and more.

VIVO's linked data supports browsing and research discovery.

Thus, a VIVO search of"gulf oil spill" (a research topic) will display

diverse results such as organizations, individuals, grants, and

more. One result, a consortium, links to a list of individual

researchers, and their profiles contain visualizations of co-author

and co-investigator networks, linking them to publication and

funding collaborators. Through data linking, VIVO's diverse

information is cross-searchable and ensures that users find

accurate information quickly.
