Website to help inventors tap healthcare market

BLOOMINGTON, IN (AP) - The creators of a newly launched website say it's designed to match inventors with companies looking for new health care products to market.

Indiana University and Cook Medical developed the new website - - in conjunction with the Indiana Clinical and Translational Sciences Institute.

The website's developers said Tuesday that it could help cut months from the time it takes inventors to find business partners. The website's users can search its database to find potential partners by searching specific keywords or disease categories.

The new website is funded in part by federal stimulus money.
