Description

Academic scientists and students – scientists in training – make basic discoveries in research programs often funded by government or non-profit organizations. The university technology transfer office facilitates partnerships with companies whose resources and commercial expertise help translate these basic discoveries into useful products. And society’s investment in research comes full circle, with basic discoveries brought forward to improve the health and prosperity of the broader community.
