Technology Transfer

HJF's technology transfer staff's goal is to make innovative medical technology available for clinical use.

By facilitating collaboration between scientists and private industry on research and development projects, our experts make technology available for clinical use.

The HJF technology transfer office protects and commercializes novel innovations developed by Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences (USU) and HJF researchers by evaluating new disclosures of intellectual property, negotiating research agreements, filing patent applications, registering trademarks and copyrights, determining a viable commercialization plan, and marketing and licensing intellectual property.

The Joint (USU & HJF) Office of Technology Transfer was created to advance inventions by HJF and USU researchers from the bench to the bedside.
