  • Broad Institute Auditorium (map)

Innovations developed at research institutions lead to significant revenue generation through patenting of novel technologies, out-licensing, royalties and university-backed start ups. However, many postdocs are unfamiliar with the role that their institution’s tech transfer office plays in the potential commercialization of academic research.  This panel will discuss the roles that a technology transfer office plays in identifying commercializable technologies, patenting, in- and out-licensing, and business development. Best practices during the commercialization process will also be discussed.
