myRESEARCHhome, a new web-based portal targeted at Duke researchers that puts relevant applications, resources, and information specific to researchers and their projects at their fingertips, launched late last month and continues to add useful features.

Developed by Duke School of Medicine and funded by the Duke CTSA (Clinical & Translational Science Award) from the NIH and School of Medicine, the free-of-charge portal is customizable and available for use by all members of the research community.

According to Duke Office of Clinical Research at Duke University School of Medicine, hundreds are already using the portal, which acts like a personalized dashboard or workspace to receive announcements, post frequently visited internet links, find funding opportunities, locate clinical trials, and store reference documents (including patents, CDAs, MTAs, SRAs) and forms. Researchers can also access their research account balances and get reminders on required trainings.

One of the benefits of the portal is that by centralizing all work-related apps in one place, including Duke Box, Duke@Work, and Qualtrics, researchers only need to log in once with their Net Id instead of logging into each one separately.

This first release of the portal includes reports and functions previously available in MyResearch, which was accessed in Duke@WORK. (When clicking on the MyResearch tab in Duke@WORK, researchers will be directed automatically to myRESEARCHhome.)
