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.
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
7155 – There is a large need for spectroscopic technology to be used for chemical identification. An optical spectrum can act as a fingerprint for different molecules, allowing identification, opening up the door for various applications. One area that spectroscopy has become a vital tool is the intelligence community for stand-off chemical detection (for example, detecting improvised explosive... Read More
7147 – Exploratory drilling, such as in the oil, gas, and mining industries, has come to rely on the collection and transmission of many streams of real-time data to monitor and guide drilling. This has allowed safer, smarter, and more environmentally conscious drilling. As significant oil reserves become harder to find and reach, such data collection and transmission technologies become even... Read More
7123 – The aging Von Neumann architecture is no longer effective at fulfilling modern computing demands and recent advances in non-volatile memories such as resistive memory (RRAM) devices can redefine the classical computer architecture. For decades, advances in computer performance were directly related to the scaling of Complementary metal–oxide–semiconductor (CMOS) transistors according to... Read More
Light-Field Photodetectors and Imaging Devices Based on Atomic Layer Crystals and Their Heterostructures
6939 – Current imaging technologies, such as using a handheld camera for taking pictures, only capture a two dimensional (2D) projection onto an image sensor, losing the 3D information. The ultimate imaging system would be a camera that can capture not only the intensity of the light forming an image but also the direction of the light (light-field imaging), allowing for reconstruction of a 3D...

6908 – Harmful algae blooms (HABs) are large growths of microorganisms, often cyanobacteria, which can produce toxins such as microcystins that contaminate sources of drinking water. In worst-case scenarios, the unmitigated presence of these cyanotoxins may require shutdown of municipal water systems until algae growth is abated and proper treatment is performed. Previously, effective treatment... Read More
6901 – Residential and commercial buildings in the US used 2,760TWh of electrical energy in 2014, and the state of the art in metering plug-loads, which represented the fastest growing segment of electrical loads, does not permit researchers or consumers to easily and accurately measure the devices that comprise this consumption. Current plug load power meters are too large, too expensive, and too... Read More
