Each year Georgia Tech develops hundreds of technologies, and we seek industry collaborators to license and take those technologies from our labs to the market. Technologies are searchable by category, key word, or phrase and include a detailed description of the technology, inventor and patent information, and contact information to learn more about each technology.
Our available technologies are updated periodically but please feel free contact the Office of Industry Engagement team for additional technologies and information.
7293 – Background: Current drug delivery methods employ small therapeutics, which do not exhibit prolonged systemic circulation or efficiently accumulate in target tissues. In order to surpass these barriers, researchers must improve conjugation efficiency and understand the rate of different therapeutics, as well as take into consideration assessments of toxicity and immunogenicity. ...
