Life Sciences Intern

Knode - Boston, MA (30+ days ago)

At KNODE, we believe that it’s not just who you know that’s important, but who you should know. Life sciences R&D-based organizations rely heavily on internal and external experts for critical tasks and projects, but the tools to identify such experts are severely lacking. KNODE has developed a comprehensive knowledge base and user-friendly Web-based application to identify experts and their content automatically in R&D-intensive fields. Our first prototype was launched in early 2012 and we recently announced partnerships with AstraZeneca and other groups as we move toward a full launch. Learn more about KNODE »
