Technology Implementation

Providing the pathway for technology transfer and implementation of innovations in patient care & care delivery.

Technology Implementation is a core resource dedicated to maximizing the deliverable benefits derived from funded translational research projects, programs, and initiatives.  By working closely with the technology licensing offices of CIMIT consortium institutions, this team emphasizes intellectual property protection and capabilities developed by CIMIT projects.

The Office of Technology Implementation (OTI) provides services to the investigators, institutions, and partners that make up the CIMIT Consortium community. OTI key objectives include:

  • Help the investigators and their institutions create and manage their intellectual assets to maximize the value of their patent portfolio and to share equitably in the commercial success of their discoveries and inventions

  • Create and integrate new business and investment models that will deliver these breakthroughs to all patients who need them at the lowest possible cost and the shortest possible time

  • Support the technology transfer and licensing functions of each member institution and actively assist in the process of transforming invention disclosures into intellectual assets, and individual patents into powerful patent portfolios 

  • Identify ideal candidates for public-private partnerships, seek the most appropriate sources of translational support and funding alternatives, design cooperative relationships that will validate the safety and efficacy of the concept, and accelerate the wide-spread acceptance of new standards for patient care

  • Anticipate and address pathway to commercialization issues

OTI actively interfaces with many public and private institutions, companies, foundations, trade associations, government agencies, NGO’s, and international health providers. These relationships helps CIMIT better understand the local, regional, national, and international health care priorities, the barriers to innovation and access, and the economic and social impact of new medical technologies so that we can more strategically select and advance future projects.

Seed funding for Investigators is one of the ways CIMIT transforms and improves patient care. Equally important is the expertise of our facilitators who enhance the CIMIT mission and help researchers move projects forward by working individually with investigators to explore the specific impact on patient care anticipated by a particular new technology.
