Epernicus™: Where Science Meets

Epernicus [] is a professional networking platform for health and life scientists. Our goal is to connect researchers with their real world scientific networks, enabling them to find the resources they need to advance their work. We believe that having a useful network isn't necessarily about adding as many contacts as possible. In fact, most scientists already have a large network based on their current institution and their prior research advisors. The bigger challenge is tapping this network to find the right people with the right expertise at the right time. That's why we created Epernicus.

Scientists use Epernicus to search efficiently for expertise, methods, and materials in their network. Through our scientific profiles, researchers also maintain a professional web presence and stay connected to their current and former colleagues. As many of our members would say, when you're looking for something, it's always better to find it through someone in your network.

Based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Epernicus is a resource built by scientists to advance research and scientific careers.

I am the co-founder of a start-up, Quartzy ( that you and your readers might find useful.

Basically it allows scientists to manage and maintain their inventories online and 'network' their inventories with their lab-mates to create a lab inventory! We think of it as networking for scientists with things that they love: chemicals, facilities and more!:)

I am happy to tell you more about it if you find it interesting. Thanks!
