American Society for Cell Biology chooses TEMIS for Science Navigator application

6 January 2015

Columbia, MD and Bethesda, MD – January 6, 2015

– Designed in collaboration with CODIE award-winning TEMIS, Science Navigator helps members accelerate scientific discovery

TEMIS, the leading provider of Semantic Content Enrichment solutions for the Enterprise, today announced an extension of their collaboration with the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) to further hone the ASCB Science Navigator, a bespoke version of TEMIS Luxid® Navigator – Biopharma Edition, as a tool for biomedical research. The ASCB Science Navigator aggregates information from millions of scientific documents and news releases, providing scientists working in basic biomedical research with an efficient, onestop shop where they can discover insights to drive their research.

ASCB is an inclusive, international community of biologists studying the cell, the fundamental unit of life. ASCB is dedicated to advancing scientific discovery, advocating sound research policies,
improving education, promoting professional development, and increasing diversity in the scientific workforce.

“ASCB Science Navigator is a powerful content analytics tool integrating a myriad of information into a single module,” said Stefano Bertuzzi, Executive Director, American Society for Cell Biology. “ASCB members can now quickly find relevant information to drive their research and take the right decision at the right time.”

“We are very proud to partner with the eminent scientists at ASCB. The ASCB Science Navigator is designed for comprehensiveness and efficiency to enable quick access to relevant information,” said Archna Bhandari, Vice President of Data and Analytics at TEMIS.

The ASCB Science Navigator is based on the 2014 CODiE Award-winning Luxid® Navigator, TEMIS’s user-friendly SaaS analytics application that helps scientists explore and then target pertinent
information. Based on a dashboard approach, Luxid® Navigator leverages advanced computational linguistics to dynamically build intuitive visualization widgets that with a few clicks, help users find information that would otherwise have taken hours or days to collate.

The ASCB’s customized application uses some of the Luxid® Navigator’s specific search lenses on key  areas of interest such as:

  • Identifying experts: For any scientific topic of interest to the user, Luxid® Navigator builds the roster of relevant experts based on their publications patents, grants, and their co-author
    network. This helps users see who is doing what and identify potential collaborators.
  • Science of diseases and their treatment: Luxid® Navigator enables a focus on the basic science of  disease including disease targets and pathways of interest and their translation into treatment.
  • Updated literature and news in areas of interest: The day-to-day evolution in the topics of scientific interest is identified.

Luxid® Navigator also includes other dedicated search lenses like Clinical Trial Intelligence and Drug Safety modules that enable professionals to gauge the competition’s trials pipelines and optimize their clinical trials, with a better understanding and awareness of relationships between drugs, reactions, patient populations.

Luxid® Navigator was awarded the 2014 CODiE Award for Best Science and Technology Information Solution by the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA), the principal trade association for the software and digital content industries, and can be freely evaluated at http://www.biopharmanavigator.com.
