This site will serve as a communication tool for the faculty and staff of Albert Einstein College of Medicine, as well as our industry partners. The office of biotechnology serves as the technology transfer office of the college, facilitating the licensing of college technology to industry and research collaborations between industry and faculty. The office of business development serves to further enhance the value of the college's research, clinical and intellectual property assets by proactively collaborating with the commercial, governmental, financial and entrepreneurial communities in novel initiatives. Together, the offices work in partnership and build upon each other’s strengths, in order to fulfill the mission of assisting the translation of basic research advances made at Einstein into clinical applications that can benefit the public.
The Albert Einstein College of Medicine retains assignment of all patents granted to its faculty. The college, through its Patent Committee, provides a mechanism for internal peer review and encouragement for its faculty to pursue patenting of technologies that are novel and have clear-cut, practical applications in biology and medicine. These applications have broad utility in biotechnology, clinical diagnostics and pharmaceutical medicine. The college is interested in promoting industry-sponsored research on our campus and the commercial development of products derived from our research activities.
Information about our policies on patenting and working with industrial partners can be found on this site, as well as technologies available for licensing and our contact information. We look forward to working with you.
