NASA Hot Technology (www.nasatechnology.com) isn't just about space shuttles and satellites. There's a lot of medical, biological, and materials work being performed at NASA, and this site serves as a portal for disseminating the organization's most commercially viable technology to the business sector. Maintained through a partnership with the National Technology Transfer Center, the page provides technical overviews of current projects and serves as the springboard for companies looking to codevelop new products with the space agency.

Small Parts (www.smallparts.com) is where I go when I'm building a model or prototype and can't find the parts I need at the local hardware store. The site is great because it doesn't have a minimum order size; if all I need is a single bolt, that's all I have to buy. You can browse through the firm's entire catalog of specialized parts on-line, and purchase what you want over the Web or by phone. If you provide drawings or specifications, the company will even machine the parts to meet your needs.

The Tissue Engineering Pages (www.tissue-engineering.net) is a site where the thought leaders in this emerging technology gather to share their insights. Featuring a range of up-to-date articles, the page contains a news archive with a helpful search function that makes it easy to find the information I'm looking for. The site also has a useful bookmark section that contains hyperlinks to other relevant companies, conferences, literature, and databases.

Medscape (www.medscape.com) is a comprehensive Internet clearinghouse of medical information. The site contains daily news updates, conference coverage, and discussion groups organized by clinical specialty. The page is easy to navigate, and after a simple one-time registration, it automatically loads the information that most suits your needs. Personally, I use the orthopedics subsite and find it a handy resource for information on the biology and biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system.

The Johnson & Johnson Center for Biomaterials & Advanced Technologies (Somerville, NJ) works collaboratively within the Johnson & Johnson family of companies to develop new medical products in the areas of implantable devices, drug delivery, and tissue engineering.
