Making conferences more diverse and inclusive
Unraveling the winding path of research
Building a more complete understanding of the research life-cycle and attempting to shorten its span is a significant part of what we do at Morressier. Original research can take years to make its way into a scientific publication, and for too long these early stages were mostly invisible to the broader research community. We are delighted to hear of success stories about posters hosted on our platform that went on to become journal articles, as it helps uncover the value of our contributions to the world of conferences and science more generally. We recently had a chance to speak with Lara Oller, a biomedical researcher from Spain, about what motivates her to pursue her field of study and the research process from poster to paper.
Five ways to increase your conference’s exposure
Knowing where to go with your conference marketing strategy and increasing its reach is always a challenge. Highly specialized areas may have a limited audience from the outset, whereas big organizations have membership in the thousands they can draw from. But whether you’re the American Psychological Association or represent a lesser known area of research, there are still many steps you can take to bring your conference to a wider audience. In this post you’ll find five key ways to take your conference to the next level and get it in front of as many interested researchers as possible.
Trends shaking up the research process
Science is constantly evolving. New techniques and solutions like the ones we develop at Morressier can quickly alter established practices, setting industry standards and permanently changing the way research is performed. Together with design expert and open science advocate, Mike Morrison, we’ve compiled a few important trends shaping the environment around research.
Trending Topics in Pharmaceutical Research
The development of drugs and compounds for the pharmaceutical industry is no simple matter. A focus on the early stages of the research process allows pharmaceutical companies to stay on top of the latest insights regarding their drugs and compounds as well as keeping up to date on new research on diseases and disorders that require medicinal treatment. In order to demonstrate the wide variety of novel insights that can be gleaned from a look into the research being presented at conferences worldwide, we’ve used our analytics platform to pull five of the top trending pharmaceutical research topics from our platform for the first half of 2019.
