Defending the University Tech Transfer System

Arundeep Pradhan (Dir., AUTM) shares interesting data from recent studies by BIO and AUTM supporting his message to policymakers,  “…to keep intact the Bayh-Dole Act and support the current system used to commercialize federally-funded academic research.”

“In the period 2000-2008, US universities received 147,515 invention disclosures, filed 83,988 new patent applications, and signed 41,598 license and option agreements., of which 4,566 were startup companies based on university research.” [Business Week, more]
