The Commercialization and Licensing group supports MD Anderson's mission to eliminate cancer as a health threat by accelerating the entrance of new drugs, diagnostics, devices and therapies into the commercial marketplace.
We accomplish this goal through:
- prudent investment of Institution resources in patents
- marketing and licensing MD Anderson ideas and inventions to industry
- the creation of new entities (start-ups)
- a long-term view of licensing income and equity value
