Securing the basis for commercialization
You have research results that could be of interest to industry? Then contact your knowledge and technology transfer colleagues or your local Ascenion Technology Manager. The sooner the better! Together, we will determine whether it is possible and economically feasible to protect and develop your project, and if so, develop a suitable patenting strategy. This is often a crucial prerequisite for further development and commercialization.
Which research results are commercially interesting?
More than you may think. With some projects the potential is obvious – novel therapeutic agents and drug targets, for example. The potential of others may only emerge at second glance. This is why it’s worth having a good look, and getting every – really every – planned publication checked by a technology transfer expert before submission. We’re fast!
Potentially interesting subject areas include:
- metabolic pathways, target structures
- active agents, mechanisms of action
- molecular biological or biotechnical processes
- biological markers
- animal models
