Business development and intellectual property
Capturing, securing and sharing the value of our innovations
Our business development and intellectual property efforts complement technology development at the Center towards identifying the most efficient path to the clinic and to wider society.
Technology transfer at the Wyss Center is an intrinsic aspect of our model towards deploying innovative research to society.
Our business development staff work closely with our technical development teams, intellectual property experts and technology transfer professionals at our collaborating institutions to ensure that the discovery and development of novel technologies are disclosed, evaluated and appropriately protected.
Partnering with industry, interacting with clinicians and patients, creating startups and licensing to larger organizations are key to bringing technical inventions to patients around the world.
