Our online catalog of inventions provides a complete, searchable listing of available technologies developed by world-renowned faculty at the University of Michigan.
You may search this catalog by any term or phrase, or sort the technologies by their assigned categories in the search/categories bar on each page. The four main categories are Application Area, Life Science, Physical Science, and Software and Copyright. Each contains more specific subcategories.
Each technology page includes a detailed description of the innovation, contact information for the appropriate License Representative, and other relevant information and resources.
Some technologies may be licensed online. These "click-wrap agreements" have standard terms and conditions that enable immediate licensing using various forms of online payment.
New University of Michigan inventions are presented to the public through this Technology Marketing Site.
2019-065 – The incentive spirometer (IS) is a common device used in hospitals to improve the respiratory function of patients with lung illnesses and all patients following operations. The device is designed to incentivize patients to take deep slow breaths several times an hour. To quick or too low a breath is inadequate. Utilization of the device is often suboptimal requiring constant... Read More
7417 – Passive radiation of heat is an energy efficient approach to cooling that requires no moving parts or power consumption. However, most state-of-the-art approaches cannot cool the object below the temperature of its surroundings, which is often insufficient. A relatively new approach utilizes materials that radiatively reject heat to Space (effectively at 3 K) by selectively emitting... Read More
2019-012 – Aramid fiber (aka Kevlar®, Nomex®) reinforced composites are materials with excellent potential for application in next generation aircraft, wind turbines, personal protection, and other high specific strength applications. However, thus far their utilization has been limited by poor bonding between the fiber and the matrix material, which leads to weak interfaces and failure by... Read More
2018-457 – The water treatment field is increasingly moving towards membrane bioreactors (MBRs) for a variety of applications due to their many advantages, including generation of biogas that can be used to offset the system’s energy and heat requirements. Dynamic MBRs represent the next evolution of membrane bioreactor technology and are actively being investigated by researchers and engineers.... Read More
2019-061 – The "Cardiology Stethoscope Handle" allows individuals with limited dexterity to hold and use a cardiology stethoscope effectively. In order to use a cardiology stethoscope, individuals must be able to listen through both the bell and diaphragm. A standard fixed handle cannot be used on a cardiology stethoscope as it would block the use of either the bell or diaphragm. The "Cardiology... Read More
2018-456 – The water treatment field is increasingly moving towards anaerobic membrane bioreactors (AnMBRs) for a variety of applications due to their many advantages, including generation of biogas that can be used to offset the system’s energy and heat requirements. Typical AnMBRs, with a single large created connected to an external membrane unit, are already successfully employed at mesophilic... Read More

Design, Synthesis, and Biological Evaluation of 4-Quinoline Carboxylic Acids as Inhibitors of Dihydroorotate Dehydrogenase
2018-281 – Cancer is the 2 leading cause of death in the United States. In 2018, an estimated 1.7 million new cases of cancer will be diagnosed in the United States and over 600,000 people will die from the disease. Although many therapeutics exist to treat cancer of varying types, these therapies often fall short of adequately treating the disease and can have detrimental side effects. Our... Read More
2018-474 – Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a widely used tool to generate detailed images of diverse body parts including organs, soft tissue, and bone. Quantitative parametric MRI enables comparison of images across multiple sites, greater objectivity, and application of sophisticated analysis techniques such as artificial intelligence and deep learning. Quantitative parametric imaging requires... Read More
2018-421 – Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a widely used tool to generate detailed images of diverse body parts including organs, soft tissue, and bone. Quantitative parametric MRI enables comparison of images across multiple sites, greater objectivity, and application of sophisticated analysis techniques such as artificial intelligence and deep learning. A factor currently limiting widespread... Read More
