The arm of the University of Arizona that helps faculty commercialize their research is reporting more and more success.

Tech Launch Arizona analyzes inventions for how likely they are to be patented and works with researchers to further develop the technology. Then they help find a business home for it with a license that ensures the university gets some kind of royalty or other payment.
