For Industry

Industry Partner Guidelines

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 welcome your interest in working with Baylor College of Medicine to develop the next generation of healthcare products and services that will benefit patients. We strive to be pragmatic in our negotiation strategy and to look for solutions that offer the opportunity for mutual gain. 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.

BCM Template Agreement

The agreement negotiation process is streamlined by using a Baylor template license as the starting point. A BLG Project Manager will supply the relevant template agreement for your review. Our template agreements are consistent with agreements from other leading academic institutions, and are generally well-accepted by our industry partners. Any industry partner that has successful experience working with academic institutions will find no surprises in our templates.

Contact the Baylor Licensing Group to obtain a sample template agreement.


Legal Counsel

To the degree that you use legal counsel to guide the license negotiations with Baylor College of Medicine, it is always useful to engage counsel that has a successful track record of working with academic technology transfer offices. This step can be an important factor to help us reach a mutually beneficial agreement faster.
