The Science Spin-offs board is intended to be a collaborative endeavor in reporting 'current' scientific breakthru's as well as, searching-out & identifying prospective emerging opportunities in the various fields of scientific research being conducted at the university level, B2B &/or by government research entities...with an emphasis on Quantum Dots, Graphene & 3D-Printing (both, in bio-med & general applications). There are no guarantees implied here...this forum is merely meant to be a 'collective' for accumulated documented (published) DD (not a 'pump'-station) &/or as a roundtable for discussions on scientific breakthroughs & developments... preferably, those that can be traded on. Please keep-in-mind that the world of scientific discovery is ever-changing and what is accepted as 'fact' today, is often proven wrong or rendered obsolete tomorrow. In addition, the myriad of daily reports of miracle milestones achieved, require further DD corroboration from 3rd parties and of the ones that remain, 'few' are destined to be marketable (& 'tradable') success stories (in the near-term anyway). Therefore; do your own DD (to your  own personal satisfaction) to validate any investment decisions you ultimately make.
