We are pleased to announce Cedars-Sinai Medical Center has selected Symplectic Elements as their research information management platform. Cedars Sinai is a multi-specialty non-profit academic hospital located in Los Angeles with strong ties to UCLA and the University of Southern California. 

Cedars Sinai focuses on biomedical research and technologically advanced medical education based on interdisciplinary collaboration between physicians and clinical researchers. They rank among the top non-university hospitals in the US for competitive research funding from the National Institutes of Health and currently have more than 1,845 research projects, many led by physician-scientists.

The team at Cedars Sinai plans to use our Faculty Reporting Solution and Discovery Module solutions to support their research data management goals.

The University measures the individual research activity of academic staff. This Measure of Research Activity (MoRA) requires the collection of publication data from faculty. Symplectic Elements supports this beautifully.

[Elements] will help to bring transparency to the richness of thought showcased within non-traditional publications, providing a more holistic representation of faculties’ scholarly work.
