The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is the largest science and medical research institute in the world. NIH’s more than 100 technology transfer professionals help hundreds of researchers – from basic to translational to clinical – patent their discoveries and license them to companies so they progress towards the marketplace. Long thought of as the go-to place for academics to work with a thought-leader and publish in a top-tier journal, NIH’s technology transfer offices are establishing themselves as open for business – as one of the go-to places for the healthcare industry to work with a thought-leader, overcome a technology or knowledge gap, and get their products to market. Translational and clinical innovators across 27 Institutes and Centers cover nearly every disease and disorder imaginable – and marketable. We develop drugs – as well as devices, diagnostics, wearable and digital health solutions, and software. We have the largest clinical center in the world – where >1000 trials run concurrently – provide clinical validation studies of first-in-human medical solutions. Our industry-friendly business terms include no up-front equity for licensees and a highly competitive overhead rate for collaborative projects.
