USC Profiles was developed from Profiles Research Networking Software, which was created by Griffin M. Weber, MD, PhD, with support from Harvard Catalyst | The Harvard Clinical and Translational Science Center (grant numbers 8UL1 TR000170-05 and 1UL1 TR001102-01).

USC Profiles is hosted by the UCSF Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI), part of the Clinical and Translational Science Award program funded by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (grant number UL1 TR000004) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Profiles Research Networking Software is available as an open source platform for institutions seeking a web-based means of facilitating collaboration among their academic researchers.
