Please introduce yourself. Tell us what you do and how it relates to tech startups. Also, please use a real profile photo. Thanks!

I live, work, and play on the UES! I'm a Life Scientist who co-founded a software/bioinformatics company 7 years ago (Gene-Home, Inc. ) and am now forming at increasing access to medicines and healthcare by bridging the gap between the natural sciences, computer/IT, and business communities....making the team necessary to further product development and commercialization of scientific discoveries accessible to academic scientists as well as making science, health, and medicine accessible to technology professionals and entrepreneurs who want to use their skills and resources within that realm. We want to help be the entrepreneurs for scientists who have a commercialize-able innovation, so scientists can keep being scientists. We also want to actively promote and develop new ideas, new solutions and new products that could positively impact health and medicine by connecting technology and financial resources.
