We are pleased to have Nick back on campus
in 302 Montana Hall. Nick’s licensing expertise
will be fully utilized in his new position. He is
already working with several MSU technologies to
assess their market and commercial potential.

The TTO has received 19 invention disclosures
in the fiscal year beginning July 1, 2002, and has
licensed 11 technologies since then. We are also
participating in start-up companies based on MSU
technologies. We expect even more activity now
that Nick will be devoting most of his time to
licensing MSU technologies.

As MSU continues to experience increases in
research funding, we expect more invention disclosures
and more licensing opportunities to develop.

Nick, Denlyn Atherton and I are here to
assist you in this process. Please call 994-7868
with any questions you may have or to discuss
