Technology Transfer At VGTI Florida


Technology Transfer at VGTI Florida® encompasses the process of identification of new discoveries that rise to the level of invention, protection of the resulting Intellectual Property (IP), marketing the licensing opportunities for commercial development, and negotiating the associated accompanying agreements.

As VGTI Florida is a spin-off from the Vaccine and Gene Therapy Institute within the Oregon Health & Science University, (OHSU), VGTI Florida assigns all IP to OHSU in consideration of this relationship. VGTI Florida works closely with OHSU’s Office of Technology Transfer and Business Development to make the technology developments at VGTI Florida accessible to those commercial entities interested in the inventions.

Our goal is to participate in the advancement of human health through our research efforts and get our technology into the hands of the product developers for public use and benefit.
