The panel was part of a workshop jointly sponsored by the Office of the Provost, the University’s Office for Technology and Trademark Licensing (OTTL), and the Medical School’s Office for Technology Licensing (OTL). Aimed at academics who are thinking of adapting their research to the marketplace, the workshop offered information, advice, and friendly encouragement.
