In case you didn’t notice, there is a new feature in Sponsor Finder.  On the left side of the page, just under “Reset” and “Search”, you can select “Find sponsor management contacts“. 

Sponsor Contacts Search

Although you can find contacts through companies that are returned in a Sponsor Finder search, this section allows you to search by title, name, location, or level across ALL sponsors.  There are over 500K management contacts (with email and phone numbers), which are all provided through ZoomInfo. Many of our users are currently using it to get lists of contacts together for projects, email campaigns, sales pipelines, etc.

If you would like a refresher or training of the system, you can always sign up for our weekly webinars at

Today, we take the time to thank and support all clinical research professionals on International Clinical Trials’ Day.  Many would think that this day was just picked by some organization to celebrate the success of clinical trials throughout the years.  But, in fact May 20th is the date when James Lind started his famous trial on how to treat scurvy.  We have come a long way since having a clinical trial to treat scurvy. Lind paved the way for clinical discovery and finding new means of treatment.

One of the main obstacles with clinical trials today is recruitment.  Organizations are having a difficult time getting the bodies they need for the trials they are conducting.  Without participation these trials can not have an effective outcome, or even worse, no outcome at all.  What many do not know is that for some, participation may be a form of treatment.  For example, for breast cancer patients clinical trials are no longer just an extra thing to do.  Instead, a trial may be their best option for breast cancer treatment.  This can also be said for many other health concerns out there.

If you check out the data card below, you are able to see the number of clinical trials that are currently recruiting across the United States:19_9K_Clinical_Trials_related_to_51_Site_States___karmadataI was shocked when I saw how many thousands of trials fall under this status, especially when it is only focusing in on the U.S.  There are endless amount of patients across the globe who are waiting for new therapies and new drugs to emerge into the market.  There is a need for more and more clinical trials, but we also need the patients to take part in these trials.  I believe that if we focus on the patient side by providing them with better information to understand clinical trials, then more will be able to take the initiative to participate.  I have seen an increase in the number of trials even over this past year alone.  I look forward to seeing what this year has in store for the clinical trials industry.

How convenient would it be if you were able to receive karmadata updates and news at a place you navigate to every day?  If you use for CRM, now you can.

With the karmadata/SalesForce integration you are able to link your accounts within SalesForce to the karmadata company entity.  Once linked you will receive the same updates as you would in karmadata, but directly within your SalesForce workflow.  Below you are able to see an example of an account page on SalesForce when it is linked to karmadata.


By clicking on the links provided in the feed, you will be directed to the source where the record came from.  This allows you to see updates and add tasks to SalesForce if you want to reach out to the company, etc.  It will change the way you do business development by blending sales data with data about the company itself.

The integration also incorporates critical metrics about the company directly within the SalesForce account page:Account__ViiV_Healthcare___salesforce_com_-_Enterprise_Edition

To link any SalesForce account to karmadata, it’s as easy as pulling up the list and clicking “link”.  When you start to use the integration, you will be able to filter between linked and unlinked companies to organize and keep track of who you are and aren’t following.salesforce_com_-_Enterprise_Edition Once you have companies in SalesForce linked to karmadata, you will be able to run reports that leverage both CRM data and karmadata metrics.  Through these reports you will be able to filter and sort companies in an organized manner by zeroing in on the most active companies or those with recent financing.  Consider the example of sorting on companies that have not been contacted in several months, but that have recently closed on financing.



By combining great data with streamlined workflow, the karmadata app is changing the business development game in the clinical trial space.

Today, We Remember

abbywellskd —  September 11, 2014 — Leave a comment

To think 13 years ago, I was sitting in my third grade class with the whispers of voices all around.  It wasn’t until I returned home that I realized (kind of) what was going on.  With all the commotion and fast paced lifestyles people are living, it seems like today everyone still takes a minute or two out of their day to reflect on September 11, 2001 and the events that happened.

All over there are people remembering the men and women who fought for our country, the heroes we lost, and the families who suffered the loss of loved ones.  In karmadata’s backyard of Boston, MA, the BC Eagles will be wearing helmets, gloves, and cleats covered in the red bandana print in honor of Welles Crowther.  Welles passed away in the September 11th terrorist attacks after saving several people from the South Tower.

It seems as if every year, my memories of the day become less clear.  It is important to remember and it is the only way we will not forget.  I can remember the way I felt and the confusion that was going through my head.  The questions I had were endless and seemed to be answered more and more each year.   September 11th had a different impact on all of us, but today America comes together as one to take the time to reflect and remember.
