Whether with startup, small, medium or large companies – around the world as well as in our own community – GRU is actively marketing and commercializing exciting and promising new technologies, which can change the future for the better. With an increasing number of commercial licenses with our industry partners, an ever-expanding base of patents, which offer our commercial partners important protection, and a special focus on promoting innovation commercialization in our region, GRU is excited to share the good news about "creating the future" - by inventing it!
The Office of Innovation Commercialization is proud to host the Life Sciences Business Development Center – a 13,000 square-foot facility that includes wet labs, offices, shared equipment, common areas and a lively atmosphere for innovation – all dedicated to incubating great ideas through its innovative startup companies.
We are excited to be closely involved in GRU intellectual property commercialization-related activities with companies from the Fortune 100 to the newest startup firm.
