Office of Innovation and Industry Alliances

Moffitt’s Office of Technology Management and Commercialization (OTMC) changed its name to the Office of Innovation and Industry Alliances, or Innovation Office. Since 2004, the Innovation Office is credited with a total of 66 United States patents issued and 160 license agreements executed, as well as approximately $30 million in industry alliances funding for Moffitt in the past year and a half.

The Innovation Office serves as Moffitt’s tech transfer entity that identifies new and exciting research discoveries that have potential commercial value and works to bring them to market. In addition, a greater emphasis is placed on forging research industry alliances, which align with Moffitt’s Research Strategic Plan - Research Financial Viability & Expanding Moffitt’s Innovation Portfolio. Some of the prominent new industry alliances include Celgene, Forma Therapeutics, and Lion Biotechnologies, which provide Moffitt with critical research funding and access to novel technologies and technical expertise.
