UCSF plays a critical role in the health care innovation ecosystem. Our inventors — top-tier scientists and clinicians — are prolific contributors to a rich vein of scientific discoveries and technological advances that advance medical care.
The goal of the Office of Innovation, Technology & Alliances (ITA) is to facilitate translation of UCSF research and innovations for societal benefit. We're proud to be part of an organization that helps pave new paths for researchers to take discoveries from their labs or clinics to the commercial marketplace.
We collaborate with all members of the UCSF community and with industry, catalyzing connections, relationships and the transfer of technology.
We partner with industry on research and clinical programs. We support and market UCSF inventions to the commercial world. We nurture our research community in exploring the entrepreneurial potential of their discoveries by providing education and resources. We serve as a knowledgeable network and a bridge to the commercial world.
