Disclosure to the Office of Technology Development

The Office of Technology Development receives 3-4 new invention disclosures each month, which are evaluated for commercialization potential.  We encourage faculty, fellows, students and staff to develop and disclose any potential intellectual property to the Office of Technology Development.

The first step is to submit an invention disclosure form to the Medical College of Wisconsin Office of Technology Development. This disclosure form can be used for patentable and copyrightable inventions, techniques or know-how, or biological materials. Note that a slightly different form is used for software. Submittal of a completed disclosure form triggers the evaluation process.

Upon receiving a completed disclosure form, a licensing manager will contact the inventor (usually within two business days) to set up a disclosure meeting. Sometimes the meeting schedule will need to be expedited because a public disclosure or publication of the discovery is imminent. The Office of Technology Development needs to be informed about all impending deadlines.
