Issues to Consider

  • Do not hesitate to call the Office of Technology Development with any questions or concerns. We are here to support MCW faculty, staff and students.
  • Be careful with disclosing your ideas. However, the Office of Technology Development will never discourage publication of data or interfere with faculty development but will work with you to protect potential IP.
  • Do not decide on your own whether something new could be a product. Even a small change to a buffer that decreases an incubation time by a few seconds could be very valuable to industry.
  • You do not have to start your own company to reap the rewards of your intellectual property. The Office of Technology Development licenses a significant amount of IP to existing companies.
