This summer has been a bit unusual for me – I have an intern working for me who is also actually related to me. My daughter is working for us three days a week doing various things that none of the rest of us has time to do. One of her tasks involves our annual Research and Development supplement. And here’s where you can help.

This supplement includes editorial coverage of hot R&D topics as well as a directory in the back listing as many R&D organizations as we can find with addresses, URLs, and information on the specific type of research being conducted. If your organization has not been listed in this directory in the past and you’d like to be included, please contact me at

For the editorial section we’re hoping to talk to a wide cross-section of industry experts who are involved in R&D to find out what exciting new developments keep them returning to work day after day. If you’d like to be included in this discussion, let me know.
