Welcome to LabPair
The future of scientific research
What we do
Research is hard, but publication bottlenecks and inefficiency make it even harder.
Scientific research has produced a multitude of discoveries that serve as the cornerstones of modern society. Despite this progress, research is plagued by systematic issues that cause extensive inefficiency and waste. Many of these issues stem from systemic problems and bottlenecks in the publication process, which is how many scientists release their work to the public, build their careers, and establish their reputations. Ironically, many stressed out scientists possess a virtual ‘gold mine’ of resources that they could use to increase the quantity and quality of their publications. These resources take the form of unpublished data, unused samples, and specialized skills.
Increase efficiency of research through publication driven match-making
Conventional research approaches are inherently inefficient, as only a small fraction of scientists’ resources are directly used to generate publications. Through a process called “publication-driven matchmaking,” LabPair helps scientists leverage ALL of their resources to generate publications, even negative data. We connect members of the scientific community by matching researchers who have underutilized resources with other researchers who are in need of those resources. These publication-driven collaborations help make use of data, samples, and skills that otherwise may go to waste.
Designed for virtually any type of research
