Finding people at universities and companies can often be done by going to their home page and using the usual personal directories found there. Their URL will often looks like - http://www.umich.edu/, where the umich is the name/initials of the univeristy or company, and the three letter end stands for: .edu educational institutions, .com commercial sites and .gov government sites.

So, a good guess at finding MicroSoft would be: http://www.microsoft.com

and the FDA: http://www.fda.gov
