Unrivalled expertise and experience
UCL has a long and proud tradition of working with the healthcare sector. Over many years our scientists have helped achieve important breakthroughs to improve patient care, from new discoveries to innovative therapies.
Today, UCL is one of the world’s leading multidisciplinary research universities, ranking highly in national and international league tables. As partners in three NIHR funded BioMedical Research Centres at University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children NHS Foundation Trust and Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, which between them have access to £160m of funding, UCLB works to support your technologies.
Our Business Managers and project management team will work with you at every step and from the earliest stages to identify, protect, nurture and bring to market your most promising novel ideas for patient benefit.
The capability we can deliver to you is end-to-end. This ranges from intellectual property (IP) protection, patent registration and support for the creation of new spin out businesses, through to the licensing and sale of technologies to industry partners.
Whether we are identifying and negotiating with possible licensing partners or developing and delivering the complete structure – the people, plan and funding – for a new and sustainable spin-off enterprise, UCLB is your conduit to the commercial world.
