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.
One-Step Conversion of Lignocellulosic Biomass to Fumaric and Lactic Acids by Synthetic Fungal Consortia
7704 – Lactic acid has myriad applications, including within the cosmetics and pharmaceuticals industries, and is used to produce the biodegradable polymer PLA that is widely used as an environmentally friendly packaging material. Fumaric acid is used as a food and beverage additive as well as in the production of body panels for the automotive industry. The global market for lactic acid is... Read More
Non-Pharmacologic Resources for the Evaluation and Management of Pediatric Acute Agitation and Behavioral Escalation
7351 – The most common reason for pediatric referrals to mental health services include agitation, behavior escalations and aggression. Currently, 30 – 40% of psychiatric consultations are related to agitation or aggression. Most pediatric care providers are minimally trained for the identification, prevention, and management of these behaviors. Management of these behaviors is often reactive and... Read More
6874 – The Adolescent Centered Environment Assessment Process (ACE-AP) was developed by the University of Michigan’s Adolescent Health Initiative (http://www.adolescenthealthinitiative.org/) and is a compilation of best practices in adolescent care. The ACE-AP is informed by standards of care set by the Society for Adolescent Health and Medicine, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, The... Read More
7532 – Over the past several decades, there has been an increasing need for better cryopreservation of tissue samples as well as increased research to tackle this problem. To-date there is a large amount of media used for the cryopreservation of cells from culture. However, there are still issue with freezing and thawing live tissue samples. This is largely due to crystallization that occurs on the... Read More
7305 – Thrombosis is the formation of a blood clot inside a blood vessel, obstructing the flow of blood through the circulatory system. The formation of a thrombus can occur within the heart or any artery or vein in the body, leading to a myriad of medical problems such us myocardial infarction, stroke, pulmonary embolism and deep venous thrombosis among many others. Although pharmacological... Read More
7514 – By 2040, Electric Vehicles (EVs) are projected to consume 1,900 TW-Hrs of electricity worldwide per year. As little as a 1% error in energy metering can cost both consumers and providers $1B. With current plug-in methods, utility-type meters can be placed on the EV chargers directly but with wireless power transfer (WPT) systems, reliable energy transfer measurements can become problematic. ...

7444 – Silicon photonics have been heralded as an opportunity to break through the processing speed limitations currently faced by electronics (limited to the speed of electricity). Light, being much faster than electricity, can improve the speed of the next generation of computing devices as the medium through which information is transferred, both on processing chips and over great distances...

7593 – Optoelectronics are devices that can convert electrical signals to light energy, or vice-versa. Light emitting diodes (LEDs) are one example of devices that have been gaining greater adoption because of their improved efficiency. Gallium Nitride (GaN) is a semiconducting material with great potential in many optoelectronic devices and could even replace silicon in some applications because... Read More
7563 – New materials for LEDs can provide many advantages for lighting, displays, and photonic applications on microchips. There has been much recent attention given towards organic LEDs, but these materials struggle with limited lifetimes, low efficiencies, and poor brightness. In contrast, Gallium Nitride-based quantum well LEDs are known to be bright, stable, and efficient, though devices made... Read More
7450 – Overview Created by the Michigan Institute for Clinical and Health Research (MICHR), the Research Basics workshop is designed for study coordinators, investigators and other members of research study teams who are new to research. This introductory program includes four modules that outline fundamental concepts and skills needed for the successful implement of a clinical research study.... Read More
