Johns Hopkins Technology Transfer: There's an App for That

IPhone, iPad and Motorola Droid users can now, with the touch of a button, instantly access the Johns Hopkins Technology Transfer office (http://www.techtransfer.jhu.edu/.) The new, free app allows anyone to easily connect to the office, which operates as the licensing arm for technologies developed by Hopkins faculty and staff and links entrepreneurs and investors with cutting-edge advances in science.

It is thought to be the first such app linking users to university-based tech-transfer operations.

"We try and find homes for technology," says Wes Blakeslee, executive director of the Hopkins Technology Transfer office. "With this new app, users have quick access to what is happening at Hopkins' tech transfer office in real time. With one touch, venture capitalists and interested licensors can connect with JHTT and learn about investment opportunities, faculty can share their latest innovations and students can see how their research can have real-world applications."

Hopkins officials say they hope the accessibility provided by the new app will bring in new business for the tech transfer office and educate more people to the vast opportunities - for education, investment, patent application assistance - available there.
