I spoke with Aberbeen scientist Alex Brand, who works on yeasts. She is using nanopatterned substrates to investigate how yeasts sense their environment and alter their behaviour accordingly to activate virulence factors and become invasive.
What other sorts of things did you have in mind then?
What applications of nanopatterned plastics...it should be real - not like "it may be used in blah blah" Among them I need something really valuable, something that people will really need... but there are thousands of manufacturers, so I can't compete...have better chances to be adopted by industry.
So you want us to tell you of a valuable, tried and true technology that people really need, could be adopted by industry, but hasn't yet been adopted by industry so you can compete?Sounds like you don't feel like doing the hard work of research and invention, and are just looking to capitalize on the discoveries of others... You wouldn't happen to have an MBA would you?I recommend working for a university tech transfer office, where you can oversee the business prospects of thousands of researchers whose hard-won findings belong to the university (not that I'm bitter or anything...)
My apologies if my comment came off a little too strong. It was the end of a long day, and I am dealing with the difficulties of developing my own tech. The way your questions were phrased triggered a knee-jerk "well why don't you try some research?" response--sorry if it was unwarranted.
