The SOM is working to help investigators connect with industry partners. Cultivating these relationships can take time and effort. Joyce Tan in the Department of Genetics is coordinating our contacts with large Pharma. For more information on the companies and types of research please see the Industry Partners in Biomedical Sciences website. If you think your research would be of interest to Pharma and you are willing to take the time to meet with company representatives, please contact Joyce.
If you are thinking about patenting a discovery, please contact the Office of Technology Development. The OTD can help with evaluation, patenting and licensing. Additionally the Kickstart Office in NC TraCS Institute works with investigators who are interested in entrepreneurship.
