4. How Scientist Solutions Helps Scientists
Find Cures for Disease Faster:


Scientist Solutions is a collaborative website. It's like Wikipedia in the amount of scientific information it houses, and it's like Facebook in how Scientists can interact and collaborate on our Forums.
We help accelerate the pace of scientific discovery by enabling scientists around the world to collaborate online in real time, all for free.  This helps scientists find cures for diseases faster and save millions of lives.

(CLICK HERE to Watch a video  about how scientific collaboration helped contain SARS before it became a worldwide epidemic 

We are one of the largest Life Science collaboration websites in the world.

Over the past 3 years we have been studied by a National Science Foundation grant recipient as one of the two best sites for scientists on the Internet. On our own we have bootstrapped and been able to grow the company to the point of reaching 1 million scientists a year. And we have advanced science thousands of times. But it’s not enough.

With an estimated 12-15 million life science researchers worldwide we are just scratching the surface.
With your help, we will connect 100% of the world's Life Scientists and cause an explosion of scientific discovery that can literally change our planet.
5. Where in the World Are Our Scientists?

Scientists from 163 countries collaborate on our website

6. Why the World Needs Scientist Solutions:

Life science researchers spend hours each week looking for products, protocols (recipes for experiments) and information. When a scientist/researcher gets “stuck “or has a challenge with their experiment, they can post a question on one of our moderated forums and often within hours they will have solutions posted from other scientists around the world. Because our forums are moderated by scientists, the answers to posted questions aren’t just crazy ideas posted by anyone, they are well-thought out and reality-based scientific answers that help move a scientist’s research forward.

Each question answered can save a scientist one month, two months, or even six months in their experiment. Take 1 million scientists and add up the time savings and you can begin to see how we are helping to accelerate the pace of scientific discovery and finding cures for disease.

NOW WE WANT TO REACH ALL 15 MILLION LIFE SCIENTISTS. BUT WE NEED YOUR HELP.


MORE COLLABORATION = FASTER CURES
These are all the areas of life science we help solve problems in.

8. Use of Funds

How we will spend the money we raise:

1. Website Development: We desperately need to overhaul the code of our website. After we re-code our website to make it stable and strong, we'll be poised to connect all 15 Million Life Scientists of the world.

 $4500/month for 24 months = $108,000

2. Staffing:

We're so grateful to all our moderators who have generously donated their time to forward scientific collaboration on our site. It's about time they got paid what they're worth!

We'll use Indiegogo funds to pay our awesome staff:

Stipends for Moderators: $200/month (24 months) for 26 moderators = $124,800

2 Support Staff (12 months) = 2 Support Staff at $3200/month x 12 months = $38,400

Our goal is $270,000. But we'll let you in on a little secret: our real goal is to raise $1 Million through this Indiegogo campaign (April 15 - June 14, 2013)!

If we raise way more than our Indiegogo goal, we have even more plans.

We will dedicate the proceeds to populating our GATCAT.com Site (patent pending) with product reviews and work towards the goal of aggregating the world’s millions of life science products from over 600 suppliers (all our customers) in one convenient place so scientists won’t have to search and research so many sites when they are designing their experiments.

Additionally we would hire additional support staff for our Events Division of ScientistSolutionsEvents.com where we connect our 600 supplier clients to scientists on site at their institutions so the two may have regular contact on the latest and most innovative products.

Please help us blow our goal out of the water so we can do everything we're dreaming of to help the Life Scientists of the World!
9. About Us

Scientist Solutions is a majority woman owned company dedicated to life science advocacy worldwide.

Scientist Solutions Inc. was started in 2004 for the purpose of promoting the worldwide advancement of science and biotechnology. To achieve this goal we have developed an internet discussion site or "Board" to provide scientists a resource for the exchange of ideas and information.
A Note from Marcia (Founder of Scientist Solutions)

The inspiration for Scientist Solutions came from two places: 
I saw the power of E-Bay many years ago to connect people:  What one person sees as trash is treasure to someone else.   While working with Southern BioTech, I saw scientists struggling every day to find antibodies.  Back then producing a monoclonal antibody was a 9 month process and the result wasn't guaranteed.  I saw my boss, Charles Lichtman, the CEO connecting scientists from one lab to another to share antibodies.  With the emergence of the Internet I felt there needed to be a hub for scientists to connect and share information, problem solve and even collaborate.
For instance, if one scientist in China shares an antibody from his or her freezer with a scientist in California, that can potentially save several months in an experiment.

Marcia Allen
If we improve efficiencies throughout all aspects of research, we can accelerate life science, finding cures years earlier.

Help us connect every scientist in the world and together we can change the world. Thank you!

Welcome from Scientist Solutions' Team Leaders
   
Alfred Lagaya - Co-Founder
Scientist Solutions Events

I was a scientist at AxyS Pharmaceuticals in La Jolla, CA where our research revolved around high-throughput, genetic disease study programs such as Diabetes, Asthma, Schizophrenia, and Osteoporosis, prior to joining a sales team selling disposables for HTS and other science applications. Marcia and I were disturbed seeing reps walking into labs and invading scientists’ privacy. As reps ourselves, we were extremely uncomfortable walking into scientists personal bench spaces. We realized scientists needed access to technology and products but wanted to completely change the process of selling into labs. We started putting on vendor shows in 1998 with about two dozen vendor friends to get the lab doors closed, while improving the efficiency of the flow of information to scientists. About five years later we formerly incorporated BioTech Solutions. Today the company is called Scientist Solutions Events. We hope you have enjoyed less interruption of your experiments. Please let us know if you would like us to host an event at your Institution.

David Klein - Chief Executive Officer,
Scientist Solutions, Inc., Scientist Solutions Events & GATCAT

David Klein joined Scientist Solutions after a 25 year career in the Technology Sector of the Silicon Valley.After working for or with companies like HP, Siebel Systems, Microsoft, Intel and Legend (now Lenovo), he was intrigued by what we are doing here at Scientist Solutions.
 

 “Having a brother with ALS and knowing there is very little funding for this terrible disease makes me passionate to help scientists in their quest for discovery and cures.  I hope to use my experience in technology, both with prominent companies and successful growth of my own start up to propel the Scientist Solutions organization and family to make a difference in life science"

Moderator of Virology

I have been a postdoc at Edinburgh University's College of Medicine & Veterinary Medicine since 2001. My work here has involved using cloning and producing recombinant AAV, Adenovirus and lentiviruses to overexpress or knockdown gene expression to better understand mechanisms involved in inflammation and cancer and very recently,  human ES cell work. I stumbled upon Scientist Solutions just as I was beginning a new project and was happy to find such a friendly community that was always keen to point fellow scientists in the right direction. I found that this matched my (Scouting) scientist values and so now I'm "doing a good turn every day" - well almost.
  


Marcus Muench - Blood Systems Research Institute. 
Moderator of Stem Cell Technology

The research focus of my laboratory is on development stem cell biology, particularly of the hematopoietic and hepatic systems.  A driving force behind my basic research efforts is a desire for the research to be clinically applicable, particularly in the field of fetal medicine. I believe that an active online community of scientists helping each other is a mutually beneficial arrangement that will foster research progress.  I have found Scientist Solutions to be a new way to meet colleagues that share similar research interests.

Sami Tuomivaara - Moderator of Protein Chemistry & Bioinformatics

I’m currently pursuing a PhD degree in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology. My dissertation work focuses on the structure and function of plant cell wall, a topic which I find intellectually extremely challenging. Besides cell wall research, I’m interested in a wide range of topics in biosciences and I hope this multidisciplinary interest and the depth of my training will help me to be an independent researcher in the future. In the summer of 2009, a colleague introduced me to SSI and I started contributing soon after that. After less than one year stint as a regular contributor to the SSI forums, I was asked to join the moderators’ team, which I gladly accepted. I hope this way I can give back the scientific community some of the knowledge I have received over the years.

Chin Fen Teo 
Moderator of Protein Chemistry & Glycobiology

I am currently pursuing my PhD degree in Biochemistry, focusing on the impact of glycosylation on cell signaling. I stumbled across Scientist Solutions one summer evening of 2009 while searching for a “second opinion” regarding one of the experiments I was working on. Having read some of the threads on the forum, I realized that I could also contribute and help others to overcome their problems similar to mine, which I spent days or weeks or even months figuring out by myself. Hence I started actively posting my tips and thoughts. In the spring of 2010, I gratefully accepted an invitation to join the team of Scientist Solutions' moderators. I hope that as a moderator, I can continue helping others in the true spirit of science.

Ginny Pearce
Moderator of Mitochondria Research

My overall research centers on human gender specific stem cell renewal with the objective of advancing the understanding and treatment of disease and injury. Adult stem cells are capable of renewing themselves, and/or generating multiple cell types during normal growth and repair. However, these capabilities can also play a role in diseased states that are associated with inflammatory response/stress and cancer. To harness and take advantage of renewal capabilities, my research focuses on two areas (1) optimization and characterization of adult stem cell cultures for renewal and selection of cell subtypes, and (2) identification and subcellular localization of certain mitochondrial associated proteins that mediate stem cell renewal/survival. The types of adult stem cells used in these studies include human neural stem cells derived from fetal tissue and mammary epithelial stem cells. Proteins of interest studied include stem cell markers for identification of cell types, and mitochondrial associated proteins survivin, p53, cytochrome c, TOM20, nuclear receptors, and hTERT for renewal. My research efforts are aimed at determining subtypes and their associated proteins as potential targets for pharmacological mediation of stem cell renewal. I am fortunate to collaborate with both institutional and industry sources to develop and culture gender specific stems cell lines.
  


Varsha Singh - Duke University
Moderator of Microbiology, Proteomics and Model Organisms

I am Varsha Singh. I am currently a postdoctoral fellow in a Microbial Pathogenesis Lab at Duke University Med center. I am so excited about microbes that I have them pervade my work, personal life and hobbies. I have even done an oil painting of a macrophage infected with Pneumophila (PDF available on request). So, when I got an opportunity to be part of Scientistsolutions as a moderator for ‘Microbiology, I leapt at it. It has been tons of fun and a learning experience. It is easier and fun to share than to go alone. Since then I am also become a moderator for “Proteomics”.  A recently added “Model Organisms’ forum, is my favorite as it includes C. elegans.
