Cobra_kid

hello, my skills are as follows
blacksmith
concept design
metal work
wood work
project management
chemistry(mostly basics with some knowledge into certain areas)
physics(same as chemistry)
minor surgery
piercing
lab write ups/procedures
and lots of other small things that may come up later.

i also start school soon to get into the local RN program

DocMorbid

That being said, I hold a degree in Mortuary Science and that leads to the one thing I've really mastered - embalming and restorative art/demisurgery. This actually provides a number of useful skills:
Gross Anatomy
Suturing
Surgical skill: Although, I've never had to worry about patient pain or death. I do have to worry about some infection - things like C. Perfringens which causes tissue gas in the deceased, but usually I take care of this with really toxic chemicals.
Sculpting: A pretty useful skill for lost wax castings and mold making of unusual parts.
Resourcefulness: There isn't a way to prepare for everything you see in a mortuary, so a lot of restorative art is just winging it.
Microbiology: Thanatomicrobiology is a great basis for general microbiology.
Chemistry: Thanatochemistry is also a great basis for chemistry in general.
Sterilization and Sanitation
Beyond the mortuary, I put myself through college working in IT (Disaster Recovery). I also have way t0o many projects and have had to pick up skills for those. The stuff I'm proficient in, but have never spent the time to master...
Circuit Design
Mechanical Engineering
Programming: C, C++, and ASM mostly.
Gunsmithing and Locksmithing: The fine machining and hand fit and finish work comes in handy for a lot of things.
Basic Genetic Manipulation
Tissue Culture and Plant Micropropagation
Really Basic Tissue Engineering
Ummm... Post-Impressionist Painting and Surrealist Sculpture? I just wanted to add another bullet point. I don't think this is really an applicable skill set.

I'm very happy to discuss ideas and procedures and provide insight into anatomical and surgical matters, although I cannot give any formal medical advice to individuals on this forum.

I am very interested in discussions pertaining to the medical ethics of 'biohacking' and how a justification might one day be made for the practice to be accepted by the greater medical community.... just as the practice of 'unnecessary but desirable' cosmetic surgery is already accepted.

Finally, for those serious individuals with advanced degrees and technical ability who have the faculty to design novel and useful implants and are looking for a surgical collaborator to plan and help execute prototypes, I am very willing and interested to discuss privately how that might be done.

Shaedlaer

I'm a medical doctor at the beginning of my career, with some interest in surgery, psychiatry, psychology and a few other fields. I'll probably start a specialization in surgery next year.
I'm from Poland, we have 6 year long medical studies + 1 year long internship here before we get out medical licenses. As far as I know our medical licenses are 'compatible' with all EU countries, I don't know American system well enough to determine how those 7 years translate into your system.

This means two things:
1. I have a wide medical knowledge from a lot of areas as well as some knowledge and know how about medical, biological, biochemical, physiological etc. research fields, as well as probably anything else one could expect from a medical doctor.

2. I'm bound to do no harm, and (especially not being a surgeon-specialist) I would not and will not perform any surgery with home-brewed implants for the fear of losing my license. Also, everything I write should be treated as 'just theoretical discussion and not medical advice, if you want to do this consult your doctors first', and other such cover_my_ass BS. ;)

During my studies, of the more interesting points, I've done a tissue engineering basics course.

I have knowledge of physics, chemistry, biology, programming, basic electronics and a variety of other topics at least at the 'I can understand what you're talking about' level because I'm very quick to pick up any new knowledge. I also like tinkering (even if I don't have a lot of free time to do so), so I know at least basics of soldering, metalworking and such.

Dreams on 'to do' list:
Making a working transdermal (and possibly in future implanted subdermal) electronics - nervous system communication bridge (I have peripheral nerves on my mind more than direct brain communication currently).
Working on cyberpunk kind of cybernetic prosthesis arms, legs and internal organs (I mean the medical grade stuff, not home grinding). I haven't found a place in my proximity that works on that yet though.
Making a working 'Iron Man' kind of exoskeletal suit (without sci-fi power source and flying probably ;P )

Spyral

Doing PhD in human genetics...

Lex

Fairly extensive anatomical knowledge. Lots of interest. So im constanly learning new things about the body. Understanding of basic chemical components of the body and why they work the way they work (tissue types, blood, nervous tissue, etc.).
- graphic design
- animation
- skills in the Adobe suite and many autodesk programs.
- probably more that i cant remember right now.
(also id like to say im sorry about my spelling and grammar most of the time because i use my phone instead of a computer and capilatization, apostrophes, and whatnot are a waste of time. If you cant understand something just ask me to repeat.)

Lasers: I've dabbled with lasers for different things, and will hopefully get my hands on a more powerful one soon.
Machining: I've started learning how to use mills, metal lathes, and CNC machines in my free time
Nanotechnology: I've got a little bit of knowledge on Carbon Nanomaterials and some of the quirks that surround them. Other than that, not much.
Artificial Intelligence: I've dabbled in AI programming and technology off and on for a few years now. I'd like to eventually acquire a working knowledge in this field.
Lock Picking: This has given me a very good feel for subtle sensations and changes in a system or device.
Hypnosis: Something I'm studying actively. I've mainly been focusing on Self-Hypnosis, and had mixed results so far.
Rocket Science: I did model rocketry for a number of years in my middle school and earlier high school days, and I've literally grown up around the space program, So I've got a decent grasp on the mechanics of Rockets.

E0N

Well... I'm working with an engineer friend and some other guys on a wearable augmentation suit so I can be a superhero in LA. Some of the things we're trying to incorporate might be miniaturized and become useful in the context... but I'm afraid most of the ones that occur to me immediately would have to be transdermal to work... and the general consensus is that's bad, I think.

And I have a military background and have traveled a lot and seen strange things. And I can do art.

I find this whole thing absolutely irresistable and terrifying at the same time -- I'm not sure I could summon the courage to perform even superficial surgery on myself. Anyway, it's a moot point for the next two years until I retire from the army.
