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.
