Taking University Research Into the Marketplace
Omenn, Gilbert S.
New England Journal of Medicine. 1982 Sep 9; 307(11): 694-700.
A review is presented of the ways in which universities have sought to translate the basic discoveries of their faculty members into practical and income-generating technologies. Patents and licenses have been channeled through university research foundations; not-for-profit contract-research laboratories have been set up; and, in medical schools, clinical faculty-practice plans have been developed. It is suggested that the medical school model would serve to identify and lend legitimacy to the multiple roles of faculty members and of universities in recombinant DNA research and the development of biomedical technologies.
