2023 Year in Review
It’s that time of the year again. The time to look back and reflect on the successes and challenges of the past year and to look forward to the coming year with a renewed sense of hope and optimism. As Carl Sagan once said about science, “Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.” For the past 16 years, our vision at Scientist.com has been to create a world in which scientists are limited only by their imagination. Our software platform empowers and connects scientists and helps them discover the incredible.
Life moves quickly, and it can be easy to keep pushing forward from one task to another without taking a moment to recognize all that has been accomplished along the journey. Below, we decided to do just that.
This year we unveiled our new product hub, which offers heavily discounted off-the-shelf reagents, lab supplies and consumables. Users now have marketplace access to a one-stop shop of 500 product suppliers and over 15 million research products in addition to thousands of custom research services from 4,300 global research labs and CROs.

In 2023 we were honored by being named America’s 11th Most Innovative Company by Fortune. Scientist.com was recognized as the 5th Most Innovative Company in California and as America’s 8th Most Innovative Company in the Technology sector. Other companies that made the Top 20 included household names such as Alphabet, Microsoft, Salesforce, Amazon and Tesla, among others.
In September 2023…WE MOVED! Scientist.com has been expanding over the years, and to accommodate our growing 120-person team we moved to a larger space. Our headquarters is still in sunny Solana Beach, California but we are now a few-minute walk to the beach, allowing for even more “(surf)board meetings” and beach strolls/meetings. Join us anytime to take out one of our Scientist.com-branded surfboards and catch some waves!
This year, Scientist.com hit a major milestone with more than 10 million human biosamples successfully sourced through our platform! This is a testament to the trust that our client and supplier partners place in us as well as the due diligence we do to ensure the highest quality standards.
