There was an article on Slate recently about Science Exchange, a kind of Craigslist for scientists looking to hire people to do experiments [link]. From the company's website, https://www.scienceexchange.com/, "Science Exchange is the easiest way for scientists to order experiments from the world’s best service providers." Some facts:
- Eight of the 10 top pharmaceutical companies use Science Exchange to outsource experiments;
- Science Exchange has seen use rise 500 percent in the last year; and
- the company recently raised $25 million to expand its operations.
