Discuss Your Ideas
The Office of Technology & Business Development encourages Mount Sinai faculty and staff to keep us informed of your latest research developments and discoveries. Though not all discoveries need patent protection to have an impact, early evaluation of an idea can provide the time needed to file a patent when appropriate and reduces the risk of losing patent rights as patents need to be filed prior to public presentation or publication of the idea.
Some of the major benefits of engaging to commercialize your ideas include:
• Using commercial channels to bring products and other solutions to patients to address unmet needs
• Enhanced personal and institutional reputation in impacting public health
• Participation in the development of important solutions and products
• Revenues for research, teaching, and personal use
Please see the Mount Sinai Faculty Handbook for more information on technology transfer at Mount Sinai.
The OTBD’s staff members are available to meet with your research team, department, or other groups to consider specific ideas for commercialization, research collaboration, or provide seminars to cover areas of specific interest to your group and explain the OTBD’s services. Our goal is to increase faculty awareness of the office’s commercial activities and stimulate engagement with industry through development of collaborative research programs, intellectual property licensing, and new business development. Upcoming events can be found here.
