Faculty Inventions Lead to a Robust Academic Pipeline

The process of technology transfer starts with the receipt of an invention disclosure submitted to the technology transfer office by the inventor. However, the fun begins when the technology transfer professional evaluates the technology and interacts with the inventor. Two possibilities exist: one where the inventor is interested in the technology transfer process and the other where the inventor is engrossed in the science but not interested in the technology transfer process. What is common about the two possibilities is that both inventors love science especially their science. The language of science allows technology transfer professionals to work collaboratively with inventors.
