Invented at Cornell University, VIVO is an NIH-funded research networking tool. Partnering with the Clinical and Translational Science Center, Weill Cornell Medicine was one of the original implementation sites.
The primary goal of VIVO is to offer faculty and researchers a polished and accurate web presence. To that end, we bring in data only from authoritative sources. In particular, we have tried to ensure that your list of authored journal articles, including those from previous affiliations, is accurate and complete.
Having accurate metadata about you and your work allows you: to attract funders, collaboration opportunities, and receive proper credit for your activities.
At present, VIVO includes all faculty with a Weill Cornell appointment as well as postdoctoral associates or fellows with a primary affiliation of Weill Cornell. We also plan to create profiles for graduate students. Note that all users in VIVO must already have Center-Wide Identifiers (CWIDs).
