The Medical College of Wisconsin Technology Innovation Council

The Medical College’s Office of Technology Development convenes the Technology Innovation Council to discuss the patenting, marketing, licensing and development of early stage biomedical technologies. The Council's meetings and work sessions bring together technology analysts, intellectual property experts, business leaders, venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, as well as scientists and engineers who share the common goal of promoting the translation of discoveries made at the Medical College into new drugs, diagnostic tests and medical devices.
