The Center for Technology Licensing (CTL) is Cornell University's technology transfer office. We manage technology for Cornell's Ithaca campus, Weill Cornell Medicine, Cornell Tech, and Cornell AgriTech in Geneva.

Connecting and Collaborating with Cornell University

Capitalizing on intellectual collisions across our campuses has led to great innovation. With today’s travel restrictions, how does one ‘walk the halls’ to start these meaningful interactions?


On our Ithaca and Cornell Tech campuses, CTL’s Innovation Partnerships and Business Development teams actively track innovations and exciting research across the entire enterprise.


For Weill Cornell Medicine, Biopharma Alliances & Research Collaboration can help with the opportunities.
