The Office of Technology Transfer, within Baystate Medical Center's Division of Academic Affairs, is responsible for identifying clinically or commercially significant research activities arising at Baystate, ensuring that such developments are protected via the most appropriate route (e.g. patents, copyrights, etc.), and working with industry to promote the development of beneficial products from Baystate's research and inventions.
The Office of Technology Transfer is supported by the Baystate Health Intellectual Property Committee, which works collaboratively to facilitate and promote development of innovative ideas and new technologies.
