I think it's a safe assumption that just about everyone on this forum is a scientist (or perhaps ex-scientist such as myself). That being the case I'm sure there's a lot of people on here with a LOT of good ideas on how to perform your research better, faster, cheaper, easier, etc... In other words, I'm guessing we have a few INVENTORS out there!
My name is Carlton, I'm a biology Ph.D. (I specialized in systems neuroscience, if you're curious) with an M.S. in project management who has spent my entire career in the biotech industry working with companies who serve life science researchers - laboratory equipment manufacturers, kit companies, protein / antibody manufacturers, etc. Myself and my company, BioBM Consulting, have made it our goal to help scientists like you bring new ideas and inventions to market without having to derail your careers as scientists.
BioBM Consulting has a special program for life science inventors to commercialize their products with very little investment of time or money, and in most circumstances we are willing to sign a nondisclosure agreement upon request to protect your idea even if you have yet to file for any patents. If you have an idea for a product or service for the life science research community, feel free to get in touch with us and we'll gladly discuss your idea and how we can potentially take it from concept to commercialization. If you would like to read more about how we can help inventors (such as you?), feel free to read about our inventor services here: [Only registered users see links. ]
