Research Translation

The Melbourne Medical School is committed to improving the wellbeing of the community through the application of new knowledge in partnership with government, industry, healthcare providers and the broader community.

The Business Development and Innovation (BD&I) team provides intellectual property and technology licensing support to University staff and students to facilitate commercial engagement, industry partnerships, research impact and technology transfer.  They provide support in identifying and developing opportunities to maximise the translational impact of research.

Further information can be found on the BD&I services page.
