Delivering value to its primary internal and external constituents and stakeholders
The mission of the CU Technology Transfer Office is to aggressively pursue, protect, package, and license to business the intellectual property generated from the research enterprise and to serve faculty, staff, and students seeking to create such intellectual property. The entire CU TTO team has done a very excellent job in in light of the tough economy. Larry stopped in the CU Technology Transfer Office in Boulder to get a fiscal year end update from David Allen, Associate VP for Technology Transfer and Tom Smerdon, Director Of Licensing & New Business Development. Start-up Company Sustainability: In the last five years, 51 companies have been formed based on CU intellectual property. Of the 51 companies from the last five years, 44 are operational as either stand alone or subsidiary/merged companies. Here's a dashboard look at what was reported for fiscal year 2008 -09: invention disclosures (best year yet); patent applications (preformed well, even with slight downward pressure on the speculative patent budget); exclusive licensing transactions (best year yet) nonexclusive licenses (only one software product producing multiple licenses); start-ups (continued performance at nationally prominent level)Proof of Concept (POC) program (considerable investment in start-ups and maturation of individual technologies); overall revenue (expected low revenue, worsened by recession); business community engagement (great support from Colorado’s technology-centric, entrepreneurial community) support from the CU Administration (strategic importance maintained); Net-net: in a challenging fiscal environment, TTO managed well, and focused on continuing to deliver value to its primary internal and external constituents and stakeholders.

CID4: Colorado Institute for Drug, Device & Diagnostic Development
"CID4 is a 501c3 nonprofit organization that's been formed to create jobs in the State of Colorado specifically in the life science industry. The institute was created to meet a need, the so called 'valley of death' between discovery of a promising technology and its actual application with people. That is a funding gap that has occurred over the last few years that makes it difficult to get companies started on technologies that are going to lead to new cures and/or medical devices," said Richard Duke, President and CEO of CID4. Larry interviewed Richard along with Kevin Smith, Exec VP and COO along with Rick Silva, Director of Technology Transfer, Anschutz Medical Campuses (Fitzsimons) about this exciting new venture. Larry asked what can we expect to see in the future? "Some of the activities we envision ourselves being involved in are essentially looking at technology across the state both from the research institutions as well as from individual entrepreneurs that have the greatest potential to lead to cures in a reasonable amount of time. The real critical part to understand is that the average drug takes 12 years and $200 million to develop. Everyone wants to know how we can be more successful in terms of bringing those products along. So the major goal of the Institute is to identify the most promising technologies in Colorado that are available for further development and then to guide that development process in a more cost efficient and time efficient manner.'

In order to do that he had to give up his tenure
David Allen, Associate Vice President for Technology Transfer at the University of Colorado is featured in the Profile of a Leader Series here on w3w3® Media Network. Before they got into the Leader Profile, Larry asked for David's forecast for the coming year. David said, "It's going to be a tough year. The economic horizon is looking a little brighter than it has for the last 12 months or so, but we're not seeing any financing, very little activity in M&A at our level; We see some of the ice starting to crack and hopefully melt; But for new companies and new ventures, which is our bread and butter, there's very little. I'm an eternal optimist and I know it's going to get better. For years we've known we would be in a revenue trough (we talked about this on your show before). We planned for that, we're going to be able to make it through that." David has a very interesting background and Larry had many questions including, "Who influenced you the most, he said his parents more than anyone else. But he thought about Elinor Ostrom who has won the Nobel Prize for Economics this year. She was David's advisor when working on his PhD at Indiana University. She is an absolutely wonderful person. What I learned from her was a sense of patience, to challenge yourself and surround yourself with bright intelligent people. I am immensely pleased to see her win, the first woman to ever have done that." Larry asked, "Can you imagine a failure you couldn't overcome, you had to live with?" David was a professor at Penn State, he had an opportunity to go to the Business School - in order to do that he had to give up his tenure. Tenure is hard earned, a torturous process and he was turning his back on it. His friends and colleagues thought he was insane...there are many leadership suggestions...listen for more...

interview with David Allen, Associate Vice President for Technology Transfer at the University of Colorado
The turning point in Dave's career was coming to Colorado. The thing that continually amazes Dave is the nature of the business community here in Colorado compared to where he was in Pennsylvania and Ohio. Dave continued, "Here the entrepreneurial climate, the DNA of the community, whatever you want to call it, it's not a difference in degree, it's a difference in kind. Here there are service providers and funding sources, but more than anything else there are people who understand it - that's different than most other places. They are willing to put in the time to support to younger people (TechStars), or what we do at the Boulder Innovation Center." Dave describes much more and he also gives some great advice to young people, "Constantly put yourself in situations where you are surrounded by smart people and figure out ways you can provide value, be prepared for those interactions, it can relate to school, your business community, friends, but challenge yourself."

|412_ Sponsored Research: How it works; How to Get in the Door
Last year the University of Colorado received $266 Million dollars in research awards. It takes a great deal of work from "the bench" to the CU Tech Transfer Office, and further coordinated with a variety of CU research initiatives. Dr. Stein Sture identified three federal grant agencies, each were responsible to over $60 million in research awards for CU. They are National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), National Science Foundation (NSF), and National Institutes for Health (NIH) The Associate Vice President for Technology Transfer David Allen works with Dr. Sture and is very proud of their results. Dr. Sture is the Vice Chancellor for Research and Dean of the Graduate School. Prior to his current roles, he served as the faculty director of special projects and initiatives in the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and also served as interim vice chancellor for research and dean of the Graduate School from October 2005 through July 2006.

Universities, business and government step up to the plate for entrepreneurs
Larry asked Paul Jerde, Executive Director of the Robert H. & Beverly A. Deming Center for Entrepreneurship to explain how the Deming Center operates. "We ask ourselves that question all the time... What does the Deming Center do? What's the 'value proposition'? And I always start with we exist as an element of the Leeds School of Business to support students; and so we bring benefit to students but more broadly we represent the Leeds School of Business and the University of Colorado at Boulder, on all matters having to do with entrepreneurship. Larry pointed out, "You have remarkable cooperation between CU-TTO and the schools within the University of Colorado." Paul replied, "On a trip to California, having to do with schools in California who were amazed at the engagement we have with our Tech Transfer program, and I came back from that trip saying, 'This is not something we should take for granted!' And that's true with Tech Transfer and Dave Allen. Paul introduced Larry Jones who has been a member of the Deming Board and a member of the Executive Committee of the Deming Board for many years, and in fact in those positions when I stepped into the role in late 2004. Larry has stepped up as the chairman of the Deming Board and Larry is the CEO of StarTek." Larry Jones moved to the business community of Boulder as a CEO, 15 years ago, he was looking for a way to connect with students and entrepreneurs and network with other CEOs in the community. He was invited to join the advisory group at that time and what sparked his interest in the first couple of years was the ability to interact with the students, to come to the classes and actually be a guest speaker.

Our country has exhibited leadership in the world for years by being entrepreneurial
In part 2 of 2 of this interview Paul Jerde, Executive Director of the Robert H. & Beverly A. Deming Center for Entrepreneurship and Larry Jones the CEO of StarTek and Chairman of the Deming Board continue to discuss the impact that universities, business and government are having on entrepreneurs. A great example of Paul Jerde's mantra and of building the Deming Board with private sector involvement is, nine members of the Advisory Board to the Colorado Clean Tech Industry Association are also members of the Deming Board and what a great example of this industry sector focus applying entrepreneurship in these wonderfully emerging sectors of energy, organics and biotech/biomedical. Larry Jones said the Deming Board of 40+ members is made up of alumni, successful entrepreneurs, current seated CEOs of the business world and if you think of that horsepower really being brought to bear in the industry sectors that we're working in - you really have magic that happens when the various community groups get together. We have various events that occur from basic simple networking nights all the way through the very concentrated critical conversation events. Others that are involved: Dave Allen is the Vice President and Tech Transfer Program for the CU; Dr. Leslie Leinwand, is leading the Initiative in Molecular Biotechnology, Marty Murphy from NREL; Tim Bauer, executive director of the Boulder Innovation Center; Brad Bernthal from the Law School and Silicon Flatirons and Entrepreneur Law Clinic; Curt Smith & Rob Lawton from the College of Engineering...Listen for more...

Letting go of space in order to create more independence and activity
Meet Dr. Sara Honn Qualls, CU TTO New Inventor of the Year, Colorado Springs. Her research interests focus on family development in later life and clinical interventions; also the development of neurological wellness and assessment tools for elderly care management. Not a moment too soon as statistics from the national insurance commission reveals that by 2012 one new baby boomer will reach age 65 every nine seconds. "As we age in our society, of course more and more of us are living longer, we are living in very long term relationships. How families navigate those changes is interesting..." and this has lead Sara to a further interest in the very robust challenges faced by families in which a member has Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia. "Those families really are America's heroes. They face amazing challenges and they ante up remarkable resources and energy, and we need to figure out ways to support them." That has lead Sara to her third interest which is housing context in particular. "What do people look for when they move into a housing campus, including independent apartments or assisted living, what do they need and how can we best support them so they can actually upsize their life - letting go of space in order to create more independence and activity?" Here we have the lady working on the answers we will all need as time goes forward.

Making a difference to humanity with the patience and fortitude to follow through
It's not often, in the world of science and superior intellect, that you and I can witness the pieces, the building blocks of a future accomplishment that could someday be a blessing on 'your quality of life' at a time when that is all that matters. Rarely revealed, here is a glimpse of a young, humble but passionate man with a lofty ideal - along with the system, the school and the country that enables and empowers this scenario again and again. I'm talking about Dave Allen and CU TTO and in this case, a young scientist, Dr. Hubert Yin who, in Dave's words represents 'the whole enchilada'. The idea is well in the works - but following a carefully choreographed path - the result is 8 to 15 years out. Stretching the envelope, his wish, to help people manage pain (a most common disease) without causing further trouble. He is on a path that is common in its course, its mind bending, detailed, hard work... the course that could lead to glory, a Nobel Prize, or not. It's about the University system and the special people at Tech Transfer who understand and assist the men and women who can actually make it happen. We sometimes hear the 'good news' without understanding. This time it is elegant in its simplicity, representative of the blood, sweat and tears behind the 'ivory tower' and sometimes leading to success you and I can appreciate. Meet Dr. Hubert Yin and really listen to Dave Allen. Simply put this is an inspiring story.

Winning partnership of a computer scientist and a cardiologist
David Allen, CU Associate Vice President for Technology Transfer said, "Collaborative cardiac imaging research with a computer scientist and a cardiologist." is what led to winning the University of Colorado's Technology Transfer 'Inventors of the Year, UC Denver' award for Drs. John Carroll and James Chen." Cardiovascular diseases are the leading cause of death in the United States and in the State of Colorado. Among cardiovascular diseases, the only type that is increasing in number and relative percentage is heart failure. By integrating research and the training of scientists and physicians specializing in heart muscle disease and heart failure, the Institute allows a more efficient and creative approach to the training of future scientists and physicians while markedly enhancing the potential for securing program grants and the ability to integrate training program and research. Larry talked with them on a number of topics including funding and its challenges during these economic times. Their overall scientific goal is to derive a complete understanding of the molecular mechanisms responsible for the development and progression of human myocardial failure and to produce new diagnostic treatment modalities. We need more winning research like theirs.

641_ New Inventors of the Year
(UC Denver) share successes and challenges
New Inventors of the Year (UC Denver) - Dr. Heide Ford (Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology, joint Appointment in Biochemistry & Molecular Genetics,) and Dr. Rui Zhao (Assistant Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics) discuss, “Research examining how genes involved in normal development may later be hijacked in tumor formation leading to novel methods of detecting and treating tumors." They went onto point out, "What we're hoping is a big benefit, is this complex of molecules (critical developmental regulators - really important during embryo genesis but not expressed in most adult tissues...So, the idea is if we could target them with anti-cancer therapy, we could target the cancer without inhibiting or targeting normal cells. That sort of cancer therapy is badly needed - many of the therapies available today actually target the normal cells too. That's why people get terrible side effects. So we're hoping to develop drugs that will eliminate or at least reduce the side effects significantly while inhibiting the cancer. Larry asked them, "How was it working with David Allen & the CU TTO team?" They said, "It has been great, a really big help getting us going on the patent work and getting us excited about the commercial prospects and the things we could do with it from a more directed development standpoint. Heide and Rui pointed out a challenge, "Money supporting the work to this point has been from government grants. However, the last several years have been very difficult to get grants. This is obviously important work that will benefit a large portion of breast cancer patients (and many other cancers) so we are hopeful that we will have the funding to do that work. They also offered some great advice for professors and researchers.

Tech Transfer is going well at the
University of Colorado
Dr. Richard Noble was awarded, Inventor of the Year, CU Boulder. He said, "The statement for the award actually involved three separate activities that we’ve done and are moving towards commercialization. With Carl Koval in Chemistry, we’ve developed an electro/chemical pump, this is a pump that has no moving parts, and it can be used to very carefully meter fluids and it’s been licensed to a company in Arkansas that’s looking at it for biological applications, related to giving people very specific doses of drugs as well as analytical chemical testing." Dr. Noble described other projects, "Something very different, we’re working with Shell on zyolite membranes to remove carbon dioxide from natural gas. About 1/3 of all natural gas fields are contaminated with carbon dioxide that you have to remove for a couple of reasons. The 3rd technology we’re working on is called ionic liquid (a salt that happens to be liquid at room temperature). He said, "The Tech Transfer Office here has done some very unique and smart things to help. They’ve started a seed grant program. If they identify a technology they feel needs a little additional work, they provide some seed grants. Our electro chemical pump received one of these seed grants and got the additional data that allowed us to license it."
