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.
6205 – The software provides the capability to analyze the response of a material to high levels of heat transfer. The software is written in modular form, allowing great flexibility in simulating different materials and different geometries.
6736 – As more devices utilize and depend on global navigation satellite systems (GNSS), such as GPS and GLONASS, more reliable testing is required during product development. By 2019, the market size for signal generators will be $262M. GNSS signal simulation mimics radio signals generated by GNSS satellites, which is a useful technique by allowing defined scenarios to be a replayed in a... Read More
5708 – LessonSketch is education software that helps researchers and educators create a learning environment. Features of LessonSketch include lesson planning, content discussions, media authoring tools, user tracking, and assessment and course creation tools. Current education software includes some of these features like lesson planning, forums, and course depiction tools. However, these software... Read More
2019-132 – Today, over 1.4 billion people have smartphones, nearly half of which have fingerprint sensors as a convenient and fast way for users to unlock their devices. Until recently, fingerprint sensors have required a capacitive touch sensor that either occupies valuable space on the front of the phone in the form of a button, or is inconveniently located on the back of the phone. In 2018, new... Read More
2019-211 – As wireless devices and technology become more ubiquitous to everyday life, so do the electromagnetic signals they transmit. Materials that shield these signals are important for lowering the amount of electromagnetic pollution around us, which can affect both the proper functioning of other electronic devices and human health. However, creating materials that possess a high degree of... Read More
2019-121 – Understanding and harnessing infrared light has enabled society to sense and perform things not previously attainable. With a wavelength just longer than that of visible light, infrared radiation cannot be seen with the naked eye but holds valuable information for innumerable applications, for example: night vision, spectroscopy, imaging/photography, communications, and even decorative...

2018-466 – Air pollution, specifically aerosols, is a major contributor to climate change and a detriment to overall human health. Aerosol acidity levels are vitally important for understanding atmospheric aerosol dynamics and secondary organic aerosol (SOA) formation, but the ability to monitor changes in acidity has remained largely elusive. Current technologies rely on modeling, estimation, or... Read More
2019-203 – The size and stiffness, or deformability, of biological cells can be important attributes when studying disease states. Red blood cells (RBC) in particular exhibit a unique ability to deform when healthy that allow them to be transported in microvasculature. Changes to this deformability have been implicated in sickle cell anemia, malaria, and diabetes. Microfluidic technologies have been... Read More
6695 – Approximately 4.5 million patients are transfused with nearly 21 million blood components each year in the U.S. alone. Studies indicate that reductions in red blood cell (RBC) deformability or the use of older blood is associated with increased risk of post-operative complications and negative outcomes. Over 12 million patients visit the emergency room every year because of chest pain,... Read More
6857 – Pathological conditions with decreased or low blood flow (ischemia) kill or incapacitate millions of people annually. Examples of such conditions include hemorrhagic shock, cardiogenic shock, congestive heart failure, cardiac arrest, septic shock, intestinal ischemia, myocardial ischemia, stroke, traumatic brain injury, sickle cell vaso-occlusive crisis, burns, compartment syndrome, and...
