The Office of Intellectual Property & Technology Transfer at the Pennington Biomedical Research Center brings together the Center's research community and outside partners in business and industry.

This technology transfer process allows inventions, discoveries, and creations from the Pennington Center to move from the laboratory to the market, improving lives through technologies designed for the biomedical diagnostic, treatment, and prevention arenas.

The Office is responsible for all aspects of commercialization, including patenting, technology licensing, and other technology-related activities. It also provides services for material transfer agreements (MTAs), confidentiality agreements (CDAs and NDAs), and other technology-related functions. Please contact the OIPTT office for further information.
