AI-based knowledge discovery platform for researchers to fight health crises and develop new drugs

Clinical Research Navigator (CRN) supports biomedical researchers with a single platform for revealing insights to drive their research and support discovery of therapies for infectious diseases like COVID-19 and other health crises.

CRN helps researchers teams stay ahead by providing immediate access to new developments in the Life Sciences field through the real-time monitoring of biological content, including patent activities, grants, MEDLINE publications, clinical trials, National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded research, adverse events, the most up-to-date scientific publications, industry news and even social media streams such as tweets.

Dynamic visualization tools support more effective collaboration between researcher teams to enable faster time to insight and better decision making.

CRN provides biomedical research scientists with an efficient, one-stop shop where they can discover insights to drive their research (for example, to discover a therapy for COVID-19 and other infectious disease), by semantically enriching, normalizing and revealing hidden connections across various information sources in a centralized platform.

Expert Identification

CRN helps researchers stay current with the leading experts and findings in the relevant field or area of interest. CRN takes you beyond your network and presents measurable expertise metrics so you can identify both established leaders and rising stars. Finding similar experts can often remedy possible conflicts of interest.  Our Expert database is a growing repository of more than 9.5 million key professionals.

Clinical Trials

CRN allows you to access completed and ongoing trials filtered for any combination of drug, indication, mechanism of action, sponsor or geography. Users can discover trials, publications, news, study results and principal investigators related to their area of interest, in one location.


CRN analyzes safety signals within reported adverse events by identifying multifaceted relationships. Accelerate your search using summary views and detailed views for the search query along with the case profile.

Trends Analysis/News

CRN constantly scans the landscape for the latest scientific and biopharma news, such as drug approvals, trials, conferences and more. Instant alerts ensure that you are informed about your topics in real time.
