Biological and medical research programs at the University of Vermont receive over $80 million annually in competitive federal grant support, and result in the creation of many technological innovations with valuable commercial applications.

Of the 54 patented technologies presently available for licensing from the UVM Office of Technology Transfer (UVM Innovations), 35 are the result of biological/medical research.

While many new inventions are likely to be licensed to companies outside of Vermont, others can result in new business development within our borders. Successful firms with early roots at UVM, such as Bio-Tek Instruments, Haematologic Technologies, and Green Mountain Antibodies, are evidence of this.
