What do you do when you have a breakthrough diagnostic medical technology that needs more partners to develop multiple use cases? How do you find the "best and the brightest" individuals to partner with? How do you find these people with no concern for their age, background, culture or any other discriminatory factor?
Meet Protean Labs.
To become a Protean Fellow you simply need to submit the answer to one of five questions listed under the Apply Now tab on the website. If accepted:
"Join us for a one month Protean Fellowship. You may choose to work on a problem defined by you or alternatively, a problem assigned to you by Protean Labs. You will be given access to research lab space, equipment, reagents and access to our scientific network. You will be expected to demonstrate self-efficacy and resourcefulness. At the end of your fellowship, a stop-go decision point is reached. If you have sufficiently demonstrated the potential for your project to succeed as a startup proposition, you will progress to the next phase where you will become a Partner in Protean Labs working with us to spin-off your technology into an independent company. You will be given the option to lead this company."
Just to say it again, applicants of any age will be considered.
