Find ideal life science labs, experts and startups

Discover rising star groups, established thought leaders, academic experts, and pharma competitors currently active in your global R&D ecosystem.

Connect with context

Top KOLs are widely known. However, it becomes challenging to identify those up and coming scientists with strong ties to KOLs.

It is even more difficult to identify KOLs who have previously collaborated with companies or created a promising spin-off to keep an eye on.

Furthermore, it is crucial to identify the competitors that are focused on your scientific topic of interest.

AcademicLabs enables you to do this in one unified platform.

“So many valuable insights with these smart filters… I didn’t realise before how much I was missing out on, simply because no other solution made this possible.”

Proactively recognise rising stars before anyone else does

Rising Stars

Identify up-and-coming groups and researchers who recently published in a top journal or won a reputable grant on your topic of interest, started their own group, and have experience in collaborating with companies.

Via in-depth profile searches and smart filters, you easily learn about their core expertise and which companies they recently worked with.

Engage with these groups directly via AcademicLabs and get a guaranteed higher response rate than with KOLs.
