Biomimetic Connections, LLC
Biomimetic Connections, LLC is a California-based firm established in 2002 to advance the commercialization of bio-inspired and biomimetic IP. Through our suite of biomimetic and bio-inspired IP portfoilios, BioParadigm ACCESS, we serve corporations, bio/material scientists and product design engineers across the engineering spectrum seeking to identify, utilize and commercialize research outcomes derived from 'biological design paradigms' (tm)
We are an established California firm specialized in identifying and profiling all bio-inspired and biomimetic intellectual property (IP), including IP for nanomaterials and associated technologies, available for corporate in-licensing. Corporations use our information portfolios for purposes of closely monitoring all bio-inspired and biomimetic-based developments, as well as for considering new product and technical-approach opportunities.
Over the past five years we have established close working relationships with the licensing offices of 286 universities around the world. As research disclosures arrive in these offices to be considered for their IP potential, we are notified when these disclosures are bio-inspired or biomimetic. This information is then consolidated into our various BioParadigm ACCESS portfolios for corporate subscription.
Our services are directed by the increasing attention material scientists and product design engineers are giving to material design paradigms found in biological systems.
Companies using our research disclosure and IP monitoring services are provided full contact details on the intellectual property (IP) we profile to pursue closer evaluations.
A selection from our current BioParadigm ACCESS™ / Nanotechnology~ Advanced Materials portfolio includes technologies/methods to develop:
> Self-assembling copolymers: fibers, films, particles, and capsules
> Biomimetic fabrication of 3D structures by spontaneous folding
> Nanostructured modular adhesives and energy-dissipating materials
> Bio-inspired nanostructures for adhesion, friction and conduction
> Biomimetic nanostructured adhesive arrays
> Biomimetic nano-scale drug delivery platform
> Membrane-mimetic surfaces
> Nanostructured surfaces for selective adhesion, sensing and separations
> Novel fine material production method-controlled deposition of functional materials on the surface of
We provide IP sample sets drawn from our various BioParadigm ACCESS portfolios in conjunction with proposals for corporate subscription.
Our IP listings are showing a brisk licensing turn-over, reflecting the value of the biomimetic and bio-inspired material IP we profile for in-licensing.
