Asst. Dir. of New Venture Programs, Vanderbilt CTTC
Vanderbilt Center for Technology Transfer and Commercialization’s mission is to provide professional commercialization services to the Vanderbilt community, thus optimizing the flow of innovation to the marketplace and generating revenue that supports future research activities, while having a positive impact on society.
We accomplish this by serving as an efficient and effective conduit for the transfer of promising intellectual property to industry; contributing to regional economic development by licensing locally and supporting new venture creation; and encouraging greater translational research collaborations between academia and industry.
My tech transfer position has provided me with the unique opportunity to showcase the entirety of my professional skillset in support of startups licensing Vanderbilt IP. My scientific background has been invaluable in my deep understanding of the technologies invented on campus, my network connections have facilitated synergistic interactions with disparate resources, and my previous work with contracts and grants has translated well to technology transfer activities. I have enjoyed making new connections with national and international entrepreneurial resources, and I look forward to developing the ecosystem in Nashville and the Southeast region as a whole.
