The Office of Cooperative Research encourages faculty to collaborate with industry in order to advance research and accelerate new technologies and therapies to market. With much federal research support mandating that researchers show the societal benefits of their work, these collaborations are essential both for attracting federal dollars and supporting early-stage drug and technology development that can lead to new therapies, new innovations and new startups. OCR has facilitated many such collaborations between industry and faculty partners.
