Collaborators at Northwestern

Northwestern Scholars

A searchable database of expertise across all disciplines at Northwestern University, allowing you to explore the profiles, publications, and grant data of thousands of scholars within Northwestern


LatticeGrid is an open source publications/collaboration assessment tool. The Feinberg version of this tool leverages data from the FSM Faculty Database, PubMed, eIRB and award databases. LatticeGrid lets you see who has co-authored with whom, who has published on research similar to yours, and who has what funding. It integrates and visualizes this data around organizational constructs such as centers and departments to build models of collaboration patterns.

FSM Faculty Profiles

If you are looking for a collaborator in the medical school, you can search the FSM faculty profiles.

Collaborators at Other Institutions


Discovery of potential collaborators is a priority of the Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSA) Consortium.  At the DIRECT2Experts site, you can search multiple institutions simultaneously and then easily explore the results at each institution on their individual sites. 


BiomedExperts is an online community that connects biomedical researchers to each other. It displays and analyzes the networks of investigators' co-authors.

A resource to learn about new collaboration opportunities and an opportunity to submit requests for new collaborators.  Nick Maull at the NUCATS Institute will be happy to help investigators navigate through this tool.
