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.
6761 – Maximizing quality (Q) factor, ability of system to keep energy, is key to enhancing the performance of mechanical resonators. To maximize Q-factor of a resonator, its dissipation mechanisms should be carefully investigated and reduced. Most phenomena, which increase energy dissipation in a resonator, can be reduced by a proper choice of resonator’s material. However, anchor loss, which is... Read More
A Low Phase Noise, Low Power, Monolithic, MEMS-based Voltage Controlled Oscillator in Silicon-on-insulator Technology
2253 – Researchers in the University of Michigan’s Electrical Engineering department have developed a monolithic voltage controlled oscillator using MEMS and silicon-on-insulator technology. Currently, no high performance monolithic clock is commercially available. However, many single-package clock parts are commercially available. These clocks typically use a macroscopic crystal as the time... Read More
Two-Phase Technique to Remove Calcified Plaques and Restore Blood Flow Coupled to A Catheter Temperature Control System in Atherectomy
7229 – The technology disclosed is a novel two-phase atherectomy technique to restore blood flow with minimized cutting force and temperature rise. The method can be used as a safer alternative to existing atherectomy techniques. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Cardiovascular disease is predominantly cased by atherosclerosis—a condition where... Read More
7205 – Tourniquets help save lives by constricting blood flow to a traumatized limb thereby preventing excess blood loss in a medical emergency. Existing tourniquets are primarily designed for use by medical professionals and combat personnel and such as the military and law enforcement agencies. Application of these types of tourniquets can be painful and physically challenging, in part, due to a... Read More
7165 – This technology is an improvement on caching algorithms to help ensure fast content delivery over networks. Content providers, such as YouTube, Netflix, or iTunes, need to make sure popular content is available to users. One way to do this is to cache popular content (or data that is expected to become popular). However, there is a tremendous amount of content with user demand constantly... Read More
6458 – Physicians and surgeons treating wounds and burns perform debridements simply according to how the insult looks. There is no objective or well-accepted method to assess wound depth or other characteristics. Punch biopsies may be used to evaluate wounds, but the procedure may impair restorative processes and cause infection. A single biopsy also does not allow for wound observation at multiple...

6869 – At their most basic, vaccines are comprised of antigens to mount an immune response against, for instance the surface proteins of influenza, and another component (called an adjuvant) to help stimulate the desired immune response against the antigens. Vaccines have been critical to the prevention of infectious disease over the last 100 years, helping to provide protection against diseases... Read More
Prevention and Treatment of Traumatic Heterotopic Ossification and Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva
6934 – Heterotopic ossification (HO) is a severely debilitating formation of abnormal bone growth resulting from trauma-induced injury to musculoskeletal and central nervous systems, including major burns and orthopedic interventions. Estimated to complicate up to 80% of hip replacements and 20% of spinal cord injuries in the civilian population, HO also affects more than 60% of military personnel... Read More
Scalable Multiplexed Drug-Combination Screening Platform Using 3d Microtumor Model for Precision Medicine
7222 – Drug Combinations have been an advantageous for the treatment of cancer as targeting two pathways can lead to an improvement in efficacy and has been shown to aid in overcoming resistance mechanisms. Clinical trials involving combinational therapies are very costly and time consuming, thus most pharmaceutical companies first assess drug combinations in-vitro. Current screening methods make...

7156 – The real-time, high throughput, repeatable, nanoscale mapping of temperature is needed in many areas of industry and public health. However, currently available technologies lack certain features; for example, contact-based methods is a destructive method, and relies on scanning which is inherently slow. Alternatively, optical microscopy-based methods, such as fluorescence microscopy,... Read More
