Deerfield Institute Report – Key insights into technology transfer offices

Translation of academic innovation has matured since the passage of the Bayh-Dole Act, 28 years ago. Universities and research institutes have contributed towards this to the tune of 380,000 disclosures, 206,000 new patent applications and 84,000 issued US patents.1 The market has responded in turn, generating 11,000 startups and 10,000 products that have yielded more than $1 billion in equity for the institutions.2 Deerfield Management has joined in this effort by entering into significant collaborations with leading academic institutions. In conjunction with these investments, the Deerfield Institute, the research division of Deerfield Management, surveyed 35 university technology transfer offices to endeavor to understand current trends impacting their organizations. The survey revealed insights that can shed light on the operations of these groups, provide guidance to those seeking to collaborate with academia and serve as a guide for continuous improvement in the practice of academic commercialization.
