Adept at Leveraging Academic and Industry Assets
The Baylor Licensing Group’s goal is to negotiate a balanced, mutually beneficial license agreement that meets the needs and interests of both parties such that it forms the foundation for a successful long term relationship. We strive to be pragmatic in our negotiation strategy and to look for solutions that offer the opportunity for mutual gain.
Experienced With Unique, Customized Partnerships
Relationships between Baylor labs/research programs and industry take many forms from relatively straight forward licensing agreements to large-scale multiyear collaborations and joint governance relationships. The joint venture between Baylor and Miraca Holdings gave rise to Baylor Genetics (formerly Baylor Miraca), which has the joint academic and industry resources to leverage the discoveries our researchers make in the laboratory to offer better clinical tests and better patient diagnoses. Baylor and Cell Medica formed a unique co-development relationship to develop a series of modified products targeted to different tumor antigens. We will work with you to customize our partnership to achieve our mutual goals.
Experienced at Executing License Agreement
License agreements can be concluded very quickly, particularly if the industry partner is sensitive to concepts of key importance to the College. View details on these important license agreement concepts.
