Do you have a good idea?

Is your idea:

  • A research tool, a piece of software, a database, or a written curriculum?
  • Do you have a prototype?
  • Is it non-obvious, novel and useful?
  • Have you performed cell studies or animal studies?

The OTM staff is experienced in screening innovations for potential commercial use. After the screen, our tech managers will sit down and provide a report of findings and work with our University innovators on a strategy for commercialization. This strategy may involve transferring knowledge and intellectual property rights to an outside entity interested in further developing the innovation, or it may involve helping a lab member create a startup venture based on University research.
