OHSU commercial collaborations have surged
Date:8/26/2008

PORTLAND, Ore. Industry research collaborations or sponsored research agreements entered into by Oregon Health & Science University produced income in fiscal year 2008 of nearly $10 million, the OHSU Office of Technology & Research Collaborations (TRC) reported today.

That represented a 48.6 percent increase over the $6.7 million produced in the previous fiscal year and a 243 percent increase over the $2.9 million total five years ago.

Altogether, 109 industry-sponsored research agreements were signed in the last fiscal year, which ended June 30, up from 70 the previous year, a 55.7 percent increase. This was the sharpest increase in the number of agreements in the last five years, a period in which a total of 329 sponsored research agreements have been signed.

Sponsored research agreements cover projects on which OHSU plays a role, either through basic research or testing, in furthering the development of potential commercial products. TRC manages industry collaborations and research commercialization for the purpose of developing new medical therapies, diagnostics or devices that benefit the general public.

"These numbers reflect an increasingly vibrant entrepreneurial culture at OHSU in which partnerships, such as one we've forged with Intel to help people maintain their independence as they age, are flourishing," said Daniel M. Dorsa, Ph.D., OHSU's vice president for research. "Gains of this magnitude would not have been possible without the Oregon Opportunity, which combined state funds and private donations to pay for research facilities and infrastructure at OHSU that are among the most advanced in the country, and for the recruitment of world-class scientists who are blazing new trails in biomedical research."

Arundeep Pradhan, the director of TRC, described OHSU's ongoing collaboration with Intel Corporation as "an emerging model for creating effective university-industry collaborations because it enables both the c
