Dr. Sumita B. Mitra

<p> I was trained in Chemistry and received my Ph.D. from the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor, MI and post-doctoral training at Case Western Reserve University, Cleveland, OH. I have spent my entire professional career of nearly 32 years (1978-2010) at the 3M Company in St. Paul, MN. For 10 years (2000-2010) I was also Industrial Director of Minnesota Dental Research Center of Biomaterials and Biomechanics at the University of Minnesota. I retired from 3M in 2010. Since then I have set up a consulting company, Mitra Chemical Consulting, of which I am co-owner and partner along with my husband.</p> <p> During my 32 years tenure at 3M Company I was primary engaged in Research and Development. My expertise has been in identifying market needs and inventing new or identifying existing technologies to design and deliver new products to fulfill those needs. 3M is a diversified manufacturing company and major player in many industries and I have had the benefit of experience in several industries including adhesives, traffic safety products and healthcare. Much of my experience has been in the Health Care businesses of 3M, including medical devices and in the dental and orthodontic arena. I have had extensive expertise in strategic planning for these businesses and in starting new categories of products. I have extensive experience in leading multifunctional teams including laboratory, manufacturing, marketing and regulatory/ toxicological services. I am the sole or co-inventor of 79 patents and am intimately familiar with the intellectual property process. As one of the top scientists of 3M I have visited and worked with laboratories and customers in 45 countries. I have also led an integration team to complete a major international acquisition.</p> <p> Our present consulting company, Mitra Chemical Consulting LLC, has a goal of collaborative relationship with client companies to meet every aspect of our clients&rsquo; technological needs in a range of diverse industries including health-care, industrial and consumer products that require chemical/polymer expertise. We have helped many start-up businesses scope out technological feasibility and scope out inventions. I have also given courses on the innovation process at several prestigious universities and large corporations.</p>
