Eureka! Recognizing when Research Gives Rise to Invention

Thursday, March 7, 2019 - 12:00 to 13:00

Lunch and Panel Discussion with Innovative Researchers of the College of Medicine – Tucson and Tech Launch Arizona 

As a UA faculty member, researcher or graduate student, you develop new ways of solving problems every day. But how do you know when your idea or research could give rise to an invention? It’s not as obvious as you think. 

At this one-hour panel discussion and lunch, we’ll talk with three accomplished UA researchers/ inventors/entrepreneurs who are working with Tech Launch Arizona to protect and commercialize inventions stemming from their research:

Roberta Diaz Brinton, PhD, Director, UA Center for Innovation in Brain Science 

Mohab Ibrahim, PhD, MD, Program Director, Pain Medicine Fellowship; Director, Comprehensive Pain Management Clinic; Associate Professor, Anesthesiology

Louise Hecker, PhD, Associate Professor, Medicine; Research Investigator, Southern Arizona VA Health Care Systems

Moderator: Lisa Lin, Tech Launch Arizona Licensing Manager for the College of Medicine - Tucson

We will talk about how to develop the mindset of an inventor, and how such a mindset can expand the impact of your research. You’ll also learn about services TLA provides FOR FREE, including assistance with invention reports (as required by many research contracts), management of intellectual property protection, asset development funding to prepare early-stage inventions for licensing, and more. 

Join us to learn how to develop your inventor mindset and get your questions answered. 

This event is primarily for faculty, researchers, graduate students and staff. 

A light lunch will be provided, so please RSVP using the form at the right by Tuesday, March 5 so we have an accurate count.
