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.
CTL manages MTAs for all outgoing transfers of tangible research materials (TRMs), including those from Cornell’s Ithaca campus, Weill Cornell Medical College, Cornell Tech, and the NYSAES, to organizations outside of Cornell. For assistance or more information about Material Transfers, contact the general inbox at email@example.com with any questions or concerns.
If you wish to explore the possibility of an outgoing transfer with minimal to no involvement of CTL, please click here.
CTL uses repositories for TRMs that are protected by patents. Additionally, repositories for TRMs can be used if the researchers would rather use a third party to manage the maintenance and shipment of TRMs developed in their research. Repositories will provide services at a charge to Cornell. CTL has approved the repositories listed below for specific purposes and the use of such repositories must be authorized for the purposes of material transfer of patented material and other TRMs.
Repository for microorganisms and reagents for infectious disease research.
Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Sciences
Repository for plant tissue, plant seed, algae, microbes, and marine viruses, and an authorized International Depository Authority (IDA) for patent deposit procedure.
