the technology to move into clinical trials.

Image-guided focused ultrasound surgery (FUS)allows energy to be focused deep in the body to noninvasively destroy diseased tissue. It is used to ablate tumors with fewer side effects and complications than surgery.

OICR had previously provided seed funding to these exciting, Ontario-based technologies through its Intellectual Property Development and Commercialization (IPDC) Program, now known as the IPDC Fund, which provides funding and translation expertise for exceptional academic projects that have the potential to transform patient care in cancer and become commercial products. More information on the IPDC Fund, as well as how to apply may be found at: http://www.oicr.on.ca/Commercialization/IPDC/index.htm

For inquiries concerning licensing these technologies, please contact OICR via email at: commercialization@oicr.on.ca.
