Company description

Problem
Scientists are constantly re-discovering knowledge that others have not had the time to publish and improving existing methods without the ability to share the improvements with the world. The reality is that most of the important discoveries are never published or shared at all, annually wasting billions of dollars in biomedical spending.

Solution
Protocols.io is a knowledge sharing platform to instantly communicate corrections and optimizations of Scienctific methods. This will revolutionize research in the lab. Vaccines, climate change, aging, cancer research - the work that impacts everyone and everything - will move significantly faster because of what we are doing.

Over the past two years, we have created a global online community of Scientists via web tools and by bringing mobile to laboratories (phones/tablets/Google Glass). We have created a knowledge-sharing infrastructure that is fundamentally transforming the communication of discoveries between researchers.
