How to use Technologies searched

A search for a company looking for a cancer, preclinical stage, synthetic opportunity would use the selection "Biomedicine, Diagnostics" in 'Sector', 'Cancerous, neoplasmatic' in 'Disease Category', 'Drugs, Small Molecule' in 'Technology' and 'Preclinical' in 'Development Stage'.

Selection of 'Enabling Technology, Platform technology' in 'Sector' will identify all kinds of searches for technologies that can be used in more areas of life sciences than pharmaceuticals only.

Each search profile gives the name or a short description of the company behind the search, and a link allowing to contact your potential licensee.

Registered users can create non-public notifications profiles which will inform them about new Technologies Searched entries fitting their expertise as specified. In addition these profiles allow them to filter the available information more comfortably.
