Eureka!  When Research Gives Rise to Invention


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 lunch meeting, we’ll talk with three accomplished UA researchers/ inventors/entrepreneurs who are working with Tech Launch Arizona to protect and commercialize inventions:
• Jonathan Lifshitz, PhD, Director, Translational Neurotrauma Research Program
• Frederic Zenhausern, PhD, Director, Center for Applied NanoBioscience and Medicine
• Kenneth Wertman, PhD, Mentor-in-Residence, Tech Launch Arizona
In our discussion moderated by TLA Licensing Manager for the College of Medicine – Phoenix Kaitlyn Norman-Powers, PhD, 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), 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.
