Queen Mary Innovation (QMI) recently ran a Postdoctoral Innovator 2016 competition, whereby postdoctoral scientists with an invention or idea that could lead to a commercial opportunity were asked to answer 3 questions.
- What is your idea?
- What is the background or rationale that led to your idea?
- And how can you usefully apply your idea to medical research and development?
The three best innovative research ideas that have the potential to lead to a commercial opportunity were selected and received a cash prize of £500 each. The winners were:
