Understanding Technology Transfer

April 7, 2017
Noon to 1:00 pm
Communicore Room C1-11
Presented by:  Ammon B. Peck, PhD

Two decades of explosive growth in biomedical science have quietly revolutionized the role of academic investigators in the commercialization of research results.  Patent applications for promising discoveries are now filed routinely by research universities, and through a process known as technology transfer, these patents are licensed to companies for development into marketable products or services.  This seminar will provide a faculty perspective and overview of the technology transfer information most important to academic scientists, such as the role of the Office of Technology & Licensing, ways in which intellectual property (IP) is protected, and the process for bringing an invention to market.
