Research Tools

Research Materials Disclosure

When a Researcher/Faculty member has developed a new tool for usage or research within his or her lab, it should be disclosed to the Office of Technology Transfer.  Research tools within this context can be very broad, including: modified cell lines, transgenic mouse lines, unique purified proteins, monoclonal antibodies, and custom created plasmids. These tools may present an opportunity for commercial benefit to the researcher’s lab.

HOW do I disclose?


  • Call the OTT at 502-852-2965 to schedule a meeting with a Technology Manager who will work with you to fill out the appropriate Disclosure Form.

We look forward to hearing from and working with you!
