Several Purdue Veterinary Medicine faculty members were recognized recently for accomplishments related to commercializing discoveries from Purdue research. Four of them were among the more than 100 Purdue innovators honored February 8 during the 12th annual Inventors Recognition Reception at the Purdue Research Park in West Lafayette. The reception recognized Purdue faculty and staff whose inventions were patented during the fiscal year that ended June 30, 2016. The inventions have resulted, or may soon result, in commercial applications to benefit society.

The PVM faculty members who received issued patents in the 2015-2016 fiscal year are:

The Purdue Research Foundation Office of Technology Commercialization reported a record-breaking 376 invention and copyright disclosures, 236 licensing deals, 151 U.S. and global patents issued, 521 global patent applications and $5.45 million in royalty income during the 2015-2016 fiscal year. Additionally, a record 27 startups based on Purdue intellectual property were launched in the fiscal year. Click here to view a Purdue news release about the Inventors Recognition Reception.
