The Center for Life Science Enterprise has been very actively transferring knowledge and technology out of Cornell University labs and into the public domain.
Examples of recent successes include: Patents by CAT funded faculty
See more on our business development webpages.
The Cornell CAT works closely with CTL to assist faculty to file disclosures, and companies in licensing Cornell technologies. It is extremely important for companies and faculty members to settle any intellectual property issues before starting work on a project.
CTL is responsible for the management of intellectual property owned by Cornell that arises from work of Cornell appointees performed in fulfillment of their university responsibilities. Cornell appointees are required to disclose their inventions to CTL in writing. CTL will commercialize and if necessary, diligently protect the property rights of the disclosed inventions. Learn about how the technology transfer process and the licensing process work at Cornell.
