It is recommended for junior faculty, postdocs and graduate students who are solving scientific problems in the lab that can improve the world.

  • What is commercialization and why should I pursue it?
  • How do I know when I’ve invented something worth “reporting” and how do I get started?
  • What is the process for securing intellectual property protection and licensing my technology or forming a startup?
  • How is the licensing process different for software versus life sciences discoveries?
  • What software-based commercialization activity has resulted from Johns Hopkins technology?
  • Can open-source software be used for commercial endeavors?
