LAEN News:

Do you have a dinosaur you want to sell? Or maybe you want to establish a Jurassic park using that speck of DNA you found in a piece of amber?

Or maybe you are searching for a research grant in order to make blueprints of a paleontological marvel? Or maybe you are just curious about how the community of dinosaur hunters gets its money?

Find out with a fascinating presentation by Ralph E. Chapman at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, Jan. 24 at The Hive, 134 N.M. 4 in White Rock.

In his 2012 book “Marketing for Scientists – How to Shine in Tough Times,” Marc J. Kuchner discusses the ever growing need for marketing of science and scientists and treating it like a business.

Chapman has “been there, done that.” Get an inside look on how it’s done with anecdotal evidence about the marketing business of dinosaurs.

He might even talk about the Smithsonian and the lab fictionalized on “Bones.”

Chapman is a paleontologist, geologist, technologist, data analyst and statistician. For 18 years he ran the Applied Morphometrics Laboratory, the main laboratory at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History for data analysis and the development of technology in support of research.

He later founded the Idaho Virtualization Laboratory out of Idaho State University. He has significant experience in acting as a mentor and coach to scientists, artists and technologists.

Thus Thursday, Jan. 24, 2013, Ralph Chapman will present “The Marketing and Business of Dinosaurs” at the next meeting of the Los Alamos Entrepreneurs’ Network. The meeting will be held at 6:30 p.m. at The Hive in White Rock. Be there.
