"Uniting Inventions across Industry and Academia"

Invention United is a new social platform that aims to build partnerships and promote technology licensing between different companies and universities. We solicit analysis and product ideas from people around the world to integrate and unite patented technologies into potential products. By identifying new opportunities and collaborations, we create value for organizations and liquidity in IP exchange. Scientists and engineers make money by selling these connections on our site, so join challenge your creativity, boost your profile, and help solve the world's problems.

Invention United is proud to launch our new website. You now have the ability to sell your ideas directly to universities, companies, investors, and other scientists. We envision ourselves as an Amazon for selling scientific product development ideas. You can click on the tab "Submit a Project" on the right to submit your own product proposals at any time.

Review other scientists' ideas by clicking on "Projects" in the menu. Review the technologies at your disposal to analyze, comment on, and use in your different projects under "Technologies." Focus on integrating different technologies together, since that is what will help sell your ideas to the most different institutions and groups of people.

Startup Guide for Invention Owners Startup Guide for New Users
1. We post your patented technology for free on our website. We can link the information from your website, or post a summary on Invention United. You choose how much to disclose. 1. Survey and discuss Technologies on our website with fellow scientists to analyze how they could integrate together like building blocks into new products.
2. Review Projects posted for your Technologies and purchase the Project Descriptions. You can review the abstracts and technologies used for free. We recruit scientists and help score the ideas for you. 2. Read Projects to see other product ideas already submitted: Medicine, Energy, Environment, Agriculture, and more. You decide what you want to design and create.
3. Choose to incentivize users with prize for submitting analysis and incorporating your technologies into new product plans. Choose the nature of the prize and the deadline. 3. Submit a Product Plan incorporating technologies on the site. Use the tab on the right of the website.
4. Utilize projects to advertise your technologies, identify licensing targets, establish new joint ventures, direct your own internal research, and identify employees to hire. 4. Earn Money from selling your Projects. People pay a small fee to read your ideas. Companies can also pay to contact you for jobs based on your ideas and merit.

Peptide Nucleic Acid for Alternative Splicing of Lung Cancer Gene
Inventor Username: Vince
Institution / Job: New York University
Date Submitted: 10/13/2012 9:49:53 AM
Abstract: A peptide nucleic acid with reduced negative charge allowing for easy crossing of cell membranes and resistance to nuclease degradation will be utilized as a therapy for lung cancer. The peptide nucleic acid will be designed to be to specific sequences in the MCL-1 gene mRNA in order to induce alternative splicing of the gene and create a cytotoxic protein to lung cancer cells. Strategy resembles proposed muscular dystrophy therapies.

Combined Analytical Techniques for Measuring Chirality and Speciation
Inventor Username: Gary Vardon
Institution / Job: Innovative Scientist
Date Submitted: 8/16/2012 4:28:25 PM
Abstract: Various novel analytical techniques including fluorescent molecular sensors, SERS, and the flow valve are presented based on the invention literature. Another powerful technique suggested is extremely rapid and fully reprogrammable total PCR assays using wire-guided droplet microfluidics. These techniques used together have great sensitivity,and specifity and can also measure enantio-purity. These techniques are especially suited to medical diagnostics, and high throughput screening of potential drugs. Combining these inventions also has polymer, biochemical and organic chemisty applications. Ultrahigh density tissue microarrays can be used to get samples that can be studied using these and other methods.
