Office of Technology Commercialization (OTC)
OTC supports CHLA’s intellectual property and inventions - from inception to market - to maximize their impact on patient health.
How We Support
The Office of Technology Commercialization (OTC) manages the intellectual property and inventions created or discovered at CHLA through invention and copyright disclosures provided to our team. We interact with industry and third parties to negotiate license, option, and equity agreements on behalf of the hospital, and we guide researchers and clinicians on the commercialization process of CHLA intellectual property and inventions from disclosure to the formation of startups.
Additionally, we collaborate with legal counsel for the protection of CHLA intellectual property and inventions as well as provide assistance with the intellectual property terms in material transfer agreements, sponsored research agreements, and collaboration agreements.
The following resources provide the forms needed to disclose your invention or copyright, showcases the inventions that are currently under management by CHLA, and lists products available for purchase that were developed by CHLA health care practitioners and community researchers.
