Technology Transfer Opportunities

An important milestone in the life of a collaborative translational research project is when the research passes through the Coulter continuum and is at the point of being adopted by an industrial partner. The role of industry in licensing technology is key to realizing commercialization of technology, improving in health care and eventually reaching patients. This portion of the CCTRP website is intended to simplify the identification of CCTRP-related technologies and foster relationships with companies interested in seeking new technologies.


Technology Transfer Process

Many diverse and exciting technologies are licensed through the Technology Transfer Office at CWRU.

The Office of Technology Transfer works closely with the Coulter Translational Partnership in service to industry -- any member of Team Coulter would be pleased to answer your questions or respond to comments at any time. Key team leadership members are:

The tech transfer process typically begins with a discussion in general terms on the technology that may be of interest and then we often seek to complete a non-disclosure agreement so that you may more closely evaluate specific technical aspects of the invention. After evaluation the next step is to negotiate a license.

If you have a particular area of research you would like to have explored, we can often arrange for a professor in the appropriate area of expertise to perform sponsored research. For more information about sponsored research or any other questions, please visit our forms website.
