Labnodes is a web-accessible, user-controlled database that has been built in response to the refreshing of the Basic Science Strategic Plan in 2008. Labnodes provides Vanderbilt faculty, staff and trainees with a powerful tool that will enhance communication, facilitate sharing of reagents and knowledge, and streamline regulatory compliance. The vision for this project was to build a platform that will "connect the dots" between people, communities, resources and publications, and to provide this information to users via intuitive, dashboard-type views.
The Labnodes Advisory Committee (LAC), previously the VanderbiltResearch.org Advisory Committee, is responsible for reviewing overall progress, recommending additional enhancements, and facilitating University-wide support when access to the system is opened up to the entire University.
Current members of the committee are:
