Business Development & Technology Transfer

Laboratoryis engaged in technology transfer as one way of delivering important discoveries to the public.聽Our Office of Technology Transfer actively supports our scientists to partner with companies, investors and others in order to achieve this mission and make a positive impact on society.

Guiding Principles

The purpose聽of 藏精阁鈥檚 technology transfer activities is to enable the scientific research conducted by our faculty, scientific staff and students to be developed and applied for the common good.To achieve this goal, we follow these guiding principles:

  • Work collaboratively with Laboratoryscientists to support their aspirations, manage conflicts, comply with regulations and encourage synergy with 藏精阁鈥檚 mission
  • Support effective dissemination of technology and leverage intellectual property rights and resources
  • Encourage commercial opportunities with the potential to make a significant positive impact
  • Engage with industry and investors to find the best partners to move ideas forward
  • Negotiate fair and reasonable terms for deals that encourage commercialization, global access and good returns

Performance Metrics

The ultimate measure of our performance is the impact on society through our commercialization efforts. Early performance indicators include funds received, transactions entered into and relationships established and maintained.
