NEW HAVEN, Conn., Jan. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Prometheus Research has been recognized by the State of Connecticut with a Small Business Innovation Research Award.
Prometheus Research, a leading provider of web-enabled database software for biomedical researchers and business, was recognized for its work with an award by the state Governor M. Jodi Rell for its "dedication and commitment to excellence in technology innovation as a small business and for its contributions to Connecticut in technology-focused research and development."
Recently, Prometheus Research, based here, won a $136,500 National Science Foundation grant to create a working, web-enabled database software prototype that will install and configure at low cost, will have minimal support against any database type, will navigate easily, perform inquiries, and will share results via the Web.
The prototype, called Prometheus Data Publisher, is an application allowing non-technical users to web-enable entire databases, select tables or columns, and easily render any database "browsable."
"We're very pleased to be recognized by the State of Connecticut for our innovative work in area of web-based software research development," said Dr. Leon Rozenblit, Prometheus Research founder and president. "A large part of our success as a software company is due to the resources we have in Connecticut, from world-class universities to a highly educated and committed workforce," said Rozenblit. "We see this as a great advantage in the competitive global marketplace."
This year, the 2010 National Small Business Innovation Research Conference will be held in Hartford, Conn., the second time in three years that the national conference on encouraging technology transfer and boosting start-up technology firms will be held in Connecticut's capital city. The national conference will be held April 21-23, 2010.
