What is LatticeGrid?


LatticeGrid is designed to:

1.  Identify the network of collaborations that currently exist in a biomedical research organization.

2.  Highlight the expertise and existing

collaboration patterns for an individual in that organization.

3.  Facilitate the application of this information to the promotion and support of intra- and inter- institutional collaboration.

What is LatticeGrid?


LatticeGrid models enable evidence-based decisions about how best to manage and direct organizational change to maximize the effectiveness of translational science initiatives. LatticeGrid enables biomedical research organizations to monitor and measure more effectively collaboration and funding patterns. By studying how these patterns change with time, organizations can use this information to evaluate the effectiveness of changes in organizational structure and policies. Understanding how shifts in institutional structure and policy affect translational science patterns of collaboration and funding is of fundamental importance to the biomedical research community. This knowledge provides a mechanism to evaluate the return on investment for team science efforts.

What is LatticeGrid?


LatticeGrid is a modular, flexible approach to assessing collaboration patterns using institutional and public data, such as PubMed. LatticeGrid can incorporate data from a variety of sources, integrate it around organizational constructs such as centers and departments, and build models of collaboration patterns. Importantly, LatticeGrid provides flexible mechanisms for acquiring and processing these data and can consume ontological representations of annotations, enabling an automated, knowledge-based analysis of semantic content of connections between investigators and projects. The ability of LatticeGrid to define collaboration teams on the fly is a unique feature not found in other collaboration tools. Another unique component of LatticeGrid is that it provides multiple ways to represent physical and virtual relationships between investigators and map those organizations onto collaboration patterns between investigators.and knowledge management platforms.
