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.
7243 – Hydro-Seq: Single Cell Capture for Whole Transcriptome Analysis
7115 – The amniotic membrane (AM) forms the inner layer of placenta surrounding a fetus during pregnancy, allowing successful embryonic implantation, providing protection against physical trauma, maintenance of constant temperature, and amniotic fluid flow that assists in musculoskeletal development. Failure of the embryo to implant contributes to loss of pregnancy, which occurs at a rate of 10-12%... Read More
6437 – Ice accretion is a major concern for airplane wings, wind turbines, power lines, marine vessels and communications towers. Removal of ice can be a costly procedure, but insufficient removal can be dangerous to people and property. The EPA estimates that more than 25 million gallons of de-icing fluids are used to deice commercial flights each year in the US, costing airlines millions of... Read More
5871 – This technology uses electrical stimulation and a tissue engineered artificial muscle derived from the patient to treatment neuromas (painful nerve growths). This reduces the pain experienced by the patient. Neuromas are often result from the nerves left behind after a limb amputation. About 1.7 million limb amputees are present in the US. About 75% of limb amputees have report severe limb... Read More
7207 – Semiconductors have revolutionized our society. Continued advances in thin films of crystalline semiconductors promise to do the same. These materials can be used to improve the efficiency of photovoltaic cells and LEDs. However, it is difficult to process and synthesize such thin films of high quality crystals. This technology concerns a new process and reactor cell for performing... Read More
6931 – Welcome to PORT (Practice Oriented Research Training). This program was developed to meet the needs of practicing clinicians who want to become competent and active members of the research enterprise. The materials you download will give you an overview of the PORT program, outline the steps needed to implement the program successfully, and provide a list of resources you will need to achieve...

7236 – Wireless sensor nodes enable embedded systems to communicate with each other with low infrastructure cost, which is a key aspect of the Internet of Things (IoT). The global market for IoT devices was $4.2 billion in 2014 , and it is expected to grow rapidly in the future. Decreasing the size of the sensor nodes allows the devices to be used unobtrusively in a wider range of applications,... Read More
7133 – Center for Disease Control (CDC) has declared that one of the biggest public health concerns that we currently face is a gram-negative bacterium. These bacterium cause many diseases and are inherently hard to treat. In addition, these bacterium also adapt quickly and become resistant to most of the available antibacterial/ antibiotic drugs. In urinary tract infections (UTIs), E. coli is often... Read More
7271 – Light scattering is a process wherein the path of light rays is affected due to irregularities in the medium that the light passes through. By controlling nanoscale features of small particles, one can control how light scatters, both in terms of the forward propagation of light and the backscattering (or reflection) of light. Such control is needed for applications such as optical coatings,... Read More
7136 – Alpha smooth muscle actin (α-SMA) is a protein marker of myofibroblast differentiation, which occurs de novo in wound healing, tissue fibrosis and desmoplasia in cancers. While this is a transient event in successful healing, its persistence characterizes chronic fibrosis, which can progress to organ failure. Thus myofibroblast differentiation is an indicator of active fibrosis, which can be... Read More
