Who We Are

OTL is one of the country's most active offices in the field of technology transfer from university to industry. Our staff, most of whom are professionals engaged directly in licensing, manages over 3,000 active dockets.

Our licensing professionals evaluate technologies that are disclosed to OTL and then develop a licensing strategy for the particular technology. Each associate is responsible for a portfolio of dockets from "cradle to grave." The associates each have an area of technical expertise in life sciences, physical sciences or both.
