Tech transfer pertains to all matters of moving intellectual property developed at Meharry to the marketplace. This includes patent development and licensing, copyrights, material transfer agreements, and non-disclosure agreements among other modes of protecting material and intellectual discoveries.
No consideration of intellectual property technology transfer shall take precedence over faculty member obligations to disseminate research results and perform scholarly activities.
All technology transfer activities fall under the shared purview of the Vice President for Research & Innovation and the Office of General Counsel. Inquiries, including MTA and NDA contracts, should be directed to VP-RESEARCH@mmc.edu and the Office for General Counsel Contract Administrator, Tammy Coleman firstname.lastname@example.org.
