Businesses of all sizes solve problems and accelerate growth by licensing cutting-edge technologies developed at UB. Discoveries are made here every day, and it is our mission to bring new products and services to market to benefit the public good.
Scientific and technological breakthroughs have led to our 50+ innovative technologies available for license in the areas of health sciences, therapeutics, medical devices, diagnostics, software, advanced manufacturing, emerging technologies and more. Visit our TechConnect database to search technologies by category or keyword, or contact a member of our team for more information.
Demand for powering wireless sensor networks, wearable devices and the like has led to the development of an apparatus and method for harvesting mechanical energy, such as environmental vibrations, and both converting and storing said energy into direct current (DC) electricity. The apparatus is a frictional interface where triboelectric charges are harvested by quantum mechanical tunneling.
Currently, there is no effective vaccine to prevent infection by nontypeable Haemophilus influenzae (NTHi), a leading cause of otitis media and other upper respiratory tract infections. UB researchers have derived a vaccine which has demonstrated effectiveness against tested NTHi strains.
Combining databases with varying data inputs requires costly manual reconciliation. Frequently different data forms are used with different terms and questions. This program automates many of the steps involved to streamline the process.
To identify a UB technology that will help build and grow your business, search our technologies available for licensing database or consult with a commercialization manager. We will develop license terms suitable to your commercialization plan and, as needed, help you identify other UB resources that will help you get to market faster.
Our Technology Transfer team helps facilitate new technology commercialization and industry sponsored research projects.
