Office of Technology Commercialization (OTC)

About Us

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.
