INFORMATION AND UPDATES FOR PATIENTS AND VISITORS

For Inventors

The technology transfer process translates discoveries into products or services that can benefit the public. There are many commercialization routes, and Cedars-Sinai's Technology Ventures is here to help inventors navigate the process.

A patent is an exclusive right granted for an invention, that excludes others, for a limited period of time, from making, using or selling the invention without the inventor's permission. A patent does not grant the inventor(s) the right to practice their invention.

Once a lead shows interest in licensing, due diligence is performed to investigate the company's background, experience and reputation. If the company appears to be a good candidate, Technology Ventures initiates negotiation of a license agreement. The goal of the negotiation is to reach a fair and balanced agreement between the licensee and Cedars-Sinai.

Cedars-Sinai shares revenue with its inventors and reinvests in research to generate a new cycle of discoveries that will eventually join the technology transfer pipeline.
