Disclose an Invention
Are you a UArizona faculty member, graduate student, researcher or employee? While we are always looking for innovations from across the UArizona community to make a better world, we are issuing an urgent call for any inventions – from drugs to devices to software – that have the potential to impact the COVID-19 crisis.

Proactive Licensing Guidelines
In response to COVID-19, tech transfer offices (TTO) around the country are rapidly moving to a humanitarian licensing model for inventions that have the potential to impact the pandemic. AUTM, the professional organization for TTOs, recently released licensing guidelines to promote broad distribution of such public health solutions by encouraging universities to 1) offer time-limited, non-exclusive, royalty-free licenses to prevent, diagnose, treat and contain the virus during the pandemic; and 2) subsequently convert such non-exclusive licenses to a more typical commercial license, as appropriate. TLA supports this effort, has identified COVID related technologies, and is a signatory to the AUTM licensing guidelines.
Rallying Forces Across the Ecosystem
Efforts at Research, Innovation and Impact
As part of RII at the UArizona, TLA is working with other organizations across our ecosystem and the community to address this challenge.
Part of the XPrize Pandemic Alliance
Facing the COVID-19 crisis is proving to be one of the world’s most critical challenges. A challenge bigger than any one government or organization can tackle without collaboration and uncommon thinking. We have joined the XPrize Pandemic Alliance in support of this greatest fight of our generation.
