Biomedical communities online: 9 new additions

I’ve been updating my extended list of medical community sites for months and here are a few more additions. It means the full list now contains 33 (!) biomedical community sites with descriptions and screenshots. Feel free to drop me a line if you know more.

  • LaboraTree: a social networking tool for scientists and a research management tool. Laboratree allows you to grow your network by joining up with various colleagues, groups, and projects. Laboratree allows you to e-mail or send messages to all parts of your network. Laboratree allows you to manage a personal or group blog. Laboratree’s latest feature allows you to share papers, documents, and other files with other people on Laboratree.


  • BioSpace is a social network in biology.  It provides the necessary functionality to allow you to share information between people (within group, friends)


  • Researcher ID is a global, multi-disciplinary scholarly research community. With a unique identifier assigned to each author in ResearcherID, you can eliminate author misidentification and view an author’s citation metrics instantly. Search the registry to find collaborators, review publication lists and explore how research is used around the world.


  • PHYZOOM: you can find the physicians in your community who are staying on top of the latest health trends, products and services. In addition, your search options are much more dynamic than your average physician directory available from your local hospitals and health systems.


  • The Science Advisory Board: Voice your opinions on companies, products, protocols and even humor in a lively, real-time, interactive Online Community of over 42,000 life science & medical professionals. Redeem generous rewards for participation in studies, contributing website content and referring colleagues.


  • MySDscience: Scientific collaborations, professional development, and science education while raising awareness for the San Diego Science Festival.


  • Web of Medicine: it was created for busy clinicians who want to build and join professional networks of medical colleagues. Users have expressed a clear requirement to connect with colleagues in their own practices and hospitals but also nationally and internationally.


  • New Media Medicine is an online Social Network of over 42,000 doctors, medical students and pre-med students. It’s like Facebook for medics.


  • Asklepios: the social network for physicians created by the Canadian Medical Association. Here you can make new contacts, get advice from colleagues, and collaborate with people all over the country. And it’s exclusively for Canadian physicians, residents and medical students, so you’ll know exactly who you’re connecting with there.
