Launch of CAS Insights introduces new destination for tracking scientific innovation trends and opportunities

Columbus, Ohio, USA – November 3, 2022 – Today, CAS, a division of the American Chemical Society that specializes in scientific information solutions, launched CAS Insights™, a new content hub at the intersection of science, technology, and innovation. Offering business and research leaders actionable perspectives on the latest developments across science and technology, CAS Insights draws on the human-curated data collection and deep scientific expertise from CAS to highlight emerging trends, unseen connections, new applications, and future opportunities across disciplines.  

CAS Insights features articles, analytical reports, infographics, webinars, videos, and peer-reviewed journal publications on topics including sustainability, biotechnology, drug discovery, materials science, consumer goods, synthetic chemistry, digital R&D, and more. CAS is providing this resource to the scientific community at no cost to enable innovation leaders from the boardroom to the bench to gain a clearer view of the landscape and identify opportunities ahead so they can get breakthrough solutions to market faster.

“By the nature of our work curating, connecting, and analyzing scientific data published across the globe, CAS has a unique vantage point at the frontier of innovation that is the genesis of CAS Insights,” said CAS President Manuel Guzman. “Our close engagement with scientific innovation leaders through the pandemic and recent custom services initiatives has helped us realize the impact that sharing the insights gleaned from the breadth and depth of this perspective can have on advancing solutions to critical challenges and inspiring breakthroughs that improve people’s lives.” 

For over 115 years, CAS has been a leader in scientific knowledge management providing data, enterprise solutions platforms, and expertise to leading innovators across commercial, academic, and government sectors. The CAS Content Collection™ is the largest human-curated collection of scientific data in the world covering discoveries published in more than 50 languages over the last 150 years. This curated dataset is built by a team of hundreds of scientists and technologists who connect the world’s science to accelerate discovery.

"Over the past decade, the pace of innovation has accelerated drastically and the percentage of published research that draws from multiple scientific disciplines has more than doubled in many areas, making the landscape more complicated to navigate and important trends and valuable opportunities harder to spot,” noted CAS Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Gilles Georges. “Our team of scientists and technologists takes great pride in using our unique capabilities and expertise to make these critical connections. For the first time, CAS Insights gives the world’s innovators access to the invaluable learnings and perspectives of these experts with their fingers on the pulse of scientific progress.”

With new content being added frequently, CAS Insights will feature high-interest topics including exosomes, microplastics, sustainable agriculture, 3D biomedical printing, and mRNA therapies in the coming months. The platform’s free subscription feature is designed to keep innovation stakeholders up to date by delivering the latest insights via e-mail as soon as they are published.
