Knowledge Transfer

Business Development, Corporate Relations,

and Strategic Partnerships


  The Knowledge Transfer Team of the Center for Biophotonics seeks to:

·         Catalyze the rapid growth of biophotonics as a new technology sector,


·         Effectively engage with industrial partners to develop new products,


·         Supply the intellectual capital to advance the field of biophotonics, and


·         Promote the growth of new companies.

To accomplish these goals, the KT program facilitates interactions amongst our CBST researchers and other academic institutions, as well as with corporate scientists, clinicians and other researchers to catalyze the development of innovative biophotonics-based technologies.


As a means to further enhance our impact, we work with companies, entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, foundations and others that have an interest in translating CBST technologies from the university research bench into the private sector where these technologies can be made into products to benefit the public.
