I’m excited to share that Science Exchange Co-Founder & CEO Elizabeth Iorns has been selected as the 2012 Emerging Postdoctoral Entrepreneur by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation.
The award, sponsored by the Kauffman Foundation and National Postdoctoral Association, recognizes new entrepreneurs who have recently completed or conducted postdoctoral training.
Elizabeth conducted postdoctoral training at the University of Miami’s Miller School of Medicine. Her experiences during her postdoc led her to create Science Exchange in May 2011 to improve the pace and efficiency of scientific research.
We’re excited that the Kauffman Foundation and National Postdoctoral Association have acknowledged Elizabeth (and us) with this award… it is a great boost and an acknowledgement of our goal to improve research collaboration and accelerate support for open innovation platforms.
Most importantly, on behalf of the whole Science Exchange team… congratulations Elizabeth!
