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.
7420 – Determination of the structure and function of membrane proteins is a challenge due to the difficulty of extracting them from their native environment while preserving the proteins’ native conformation. Traditional protocols involve extraction using detergents, which leads to issues such as protein inactivation and sample aggregation. Recently, methods have been developed that utilize... Read More
7225 – Explosives, and related energetic materials such as propellants and pyrotechnics, have a large amount of stored chemical energy that can be released with a suitable initiation event. The rapid release is facilitated by the proximity of fuel and oxidizer within the molecule. However, the vast majority of compounds used as explosives are under-oxidized, which decreases their performance. The... Read More
7091 – Explosives, and related energetic materials such as propellants and pyrotechnics, have a large amount of stored chemical energy that can be released with a suitable initiation event. The rapid release is facilitated by the proximity of fuel and oxidizer within the molecule. However, the vast majority of compounds used as explosives are under-oxidized, which decreases their performance. New... Read More
5836 – Narrowband transmission filters for infrared wavelengths, particularly long wavelength infrared (LWIR), have been difficult to develop and implement. This has in turn limited the use of these longer wavelengths in technologies, such as hyperspectral imaging, remote sensing, and aerospace and aeronautics systems. Researchers at University of Michigan have developed a new approach... Read More
2018-375 – Benzylic methylene linkages are commonly found in many compounds of therapeutic interest but are quickly oxidized by cytochrome P450 enzymes and thus have undesirably short biological half-lives. An attractive approach for improving their metabolic stability is to replace the benzylic methylene linkage with a benzylic difluoromethylene functionality (Ar-CF2-R). These fluorinated... Read More
2018-355 – Thermophotovoltaic (TPV) energy conversion refers to a process in which thermal energy is converted to electrical energy. Compared to conventional photovoltaic solar panels, TPV panels have the potential for significantly higher energy densities and should be able to provide comparable output power while using significantly smaller footprints. TPV devices consist of a thermal emitter... Read More
7656 – Unmet Medical Need: Bone damage is a devastating disease outcome for many millions of patients with arthritis or other bone-destroying conditions. Despite the advent of biologic agents, treating erosive bone damage remains a challenging endeavor. Currently used biologic agents and other modern drugs are very expensive, have significant side effects, and most of them can only be... Read More
2018-385 – Overview: The purpose of the CENI narrative interview format is to facilitate a participant to connect aspects of life together and to examine these connections from a variety of angles. The CENI helps participants describe their experiences, discover the meaning of them in their lives, and to relate that meaning to healing and recovery based on their emerging self-awareness. The CENI's... Read More
7170 – BACKGROUND Computerized cognitive training program designed to improve cognitive function in older adults. TECHNOLOGY Program is unique in specifically targeting hippocampal- and frontal-based brain functioning. Participant moves through a game-like environment involving a series of interconnected hallways and alleys. APPLICATIONS Cognition in aging, medical illness, and dementia Child... Read More
Cooper Urinary Tract Infection Program (CUTIP): Multifaceted Urinary Tract Infection Quality Improvement Program
2018-318 – The Cooper Urinary Tract Infection (UTI) Program (CUTIP) is a multifaceted evidence-based infection control program for UTIs in Long Term Care Facilities (LTCF) that uses an algorithmic process, staff education, and change champions to improve patient outcomes. Through use of best practices, CUTIP improves assessment and diagnosis of UTI in LTC residents. This meets the healthcare requisites... Read More
