What is Curvita?

We have supplanted multiple Graduate Programs Office databases with a single data management instrument named Curvita.

Curvita is a data management system which works as a single hub for managing faculty and departmental data through its web-based interface.  Curvita’s purpose is to combine data from separate systems, link them together in a single centralized system, and leverage the data into NIH biosketches and T32 training grant tables.

Curvita Benefits (relative to past databases)

  1. Direct web accessible – just paste the following link into your browser: http://somcurveweb.eservices.virginia.edu/
  2. Secure access via Netbadge and your usual UVa login ID and password
  3. Citations importation from PubMed including:
    • PMIDs and PMCIDs
    • Full references
    • Abstracts
    • Permits one-tick selection and de-selection of articles for display
  4. Biosketch creation – autoformatted for NIH or NSF – output in MSWord or PDF.
  5. Research Faculty Directory (RFD) simplification – faculty can now update their RFD listing by directly editing information in Curvita which is then ported to the RFD.
  6. Web pages – BIMS and other websites will port information from Curvita
  7. Training Grants – PI or administrator can generate all T32 Tables via the web interface.

The Graduate Programs Office’s support of Curvita includes:

  • Providing the introduction of Curvita to faculty and staff
  • Resolving data-entry issues.
  • Resolving Curvita-to-RFD migration issues
