Translation and Business Opportunities
The UCL Research Department
of Cell and Developmental Biology aims to foster the conversion of
results into intellectual property amenable to development and
The department has already established a good record of technology transfer, commercial interest and collaboration. Department strengths are in Cell and Developmental Biology, Neurobiology, Regeneration and Stem Cells. These strengths enable us to offer a commercial partner access to a broad skill base and to new research areas
commercial partners should contact the Business Development Manager, at UCL Business PLC.
UCL Business encourages and supports the commercialisation of knowledge from UCL. We aim to help academics develop their ideas with a view to translating those ideas into patents and other intellectual property.
UCL Business also provides a range of services to UCL colleagues, including;
- identification, protection
and licensing intellectual property (IP)
- advice and help in setting up a
new ‘spin-out’ company
- links to industry
- provision of seed funds and links to organisations providing further funding
- Material Transfer Agreements (MTAs)
- Confidentiality Agreements (CDAs)
It’s important to note that the inventor, their department and UCL financially benefit from commercialisation of research, as well as the general public and the UK economy as a whole.
