Licensing from the US Government is impossible, true or false? This webinar will discuss licensing biomedical technologies from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). 

The discussion will focus on: 

  1. recent changes in the structure of technology transfer at the NIH; 
  2. how to apply for a license from the NIH; 
  3. licensing agreements available from the NIH and how they are used; 
  4. key requirements of NIH licenses; and 
  5. the National Cancer Institutes’ (NCI) Start-Up 2.0 Program.
