Resources for Technology Transfer


The establishment of a faculty or graduate student startup company may raise issues concerning potential conflicts of interest. If conflicts are not appropriately managed or reviewed, they could leave the researcher and the institution vulnerable to charges of bias in research, and may also raise regulatory concerns. The Office of Research Compliance and Training is available for consultations. Contact Carmen Nieves ([email protected]) to schedule a consultation.
