Office of Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer

The Office of Intellectual Property and Technology Transfer assists faculty, staff, and students with issues related to Intellectual Property protection. This includes managing, protecting, and licensing the University's Intellectual Property (IP).

Our Office is responsible for promoting research partnerships and negotiating agreements between the University and outside entities. These partnerships help enable federally funded research findings to be further developed and commercialized.

Our Office conducts legal review of research agreements. Agreements include confidentiality/non-disclosure, collaboration, service, data transfer/use, material transfer, and sponsored research. Our Office works alongside the Office of Research and Sponsored Programs to negotiate and review the relevant provisions of these agreements. The Office of General Counsel may also assist the Office in reviewing the provisions of specific contracts.
