WHAT WE DO

We work with research scientists and clinicians at the University Health Network (UHN) to create new intellectual property and advance it towards innovative commercial applications.

The mandate of the UHN office of Technology Development & Commercialization (TDC) is to facilitate the identification and development towards practical applications of research discoveries with new product potential. As such, our office is responsible for establishing effective partnership arrangements with the private sector for the purposes of both knowledge transfer and technology licensing.
