CAMBIA – Ranked #54 (up 32 places from #86 in 2012)

Founded by molecular biologist Richard Jefferson, since 1992 Cambia has sought to develop and disseminate new technologies and collaborative instruments while fostering transparency and innovation in the life sciences.

Across a handful of key projects, Cambia is energetically and ambitiously working to democratize scientific innovation, most notably through the ‘Patent Lens’ – an open access, Gates Foundation-backed online facility dedicated to mapping global patent landscapes.
