Welcome to the Office of Technology Commercialization!

Innovation is the heart of Rowan Research, and every day Rowan faculty and students are developing new innovations in the life sciences, pharmaceutical, computing and engineering disciplines. The Office of Technology Commercialization (OTC) is responsible for aligning these innovations to respond to commercially unmet market needs. OTC works closely with faculty and industry to bridge the gap between the lab and the market place by strategically managing and developing Rowan's Intellectual Property Portfolio, increasing external awareness for Rowan innovations and educating faculty on the significance of developing commercially relevant research for licensing and start-up opportunities. Rowan University recognizes the significance of industry collaboration and the OTC is dedicated to developing industry partnerships.
