New Source for Science Funding: BenchFly Pioneers Search for Research Program
Date:3/2/2010

Free downloadable toolbar raises funds via Internet search to directly benefit research scientists. The Search for Research program injects public participation into the funding process through social media, a first in the scientific community.

Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) March 2, 2010 -- Taking action on its mission to make research a better career today and for future generations of scientists, BenchFly™, Inc., today announced the launch of Search For Research™, an international fundraising and scientific awareness program to benefit researchers worldwide. BenchFly is driving the program with the availability of a free, downloadable toolbar designed to raise donation money for every Internet search query performed, with no cost to the end user. BenchFly's premier Search for Research partner Sigma-Aldrich® (Nasdaq: SIAL), a leading life sciences and high technology company, is excited to contribute matching funds generated from use of the toolbar. The Search for Research toolbar is free to download and available now along with science videos, laboratory techniques and current protocols at BenchFly.com.

BenchFly will award 100 percent of the Search for Research proceeds directly to researchers in the form of microgrants, which are smaller and more targeted grant sums designed to empower individual members of the scientific community. Any scientist, anywhere in the world, is invited to apply and compete for a BenchFly Microgrant. Putting a modern twist on science's traditional peer review model, BenchFly will determine the final award recipients by hosting a global popular vote open to the public through BenchFly's company page on Facebook.
