Technology Transfer Office
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Technology Transfer Office partners with industry, academia, and other Government agencies to transfer CDC’s research portfolio into products and services to improve public health in the USA and across the globe.
The TTO provides a complete array of services to support technology development activities: negotiating transactional agreements with outside parties to ensure compliance with Federal statutes and regulations; reviewing employee invention reports; and making recommendations to the National Institute of Health Office of Technology Transfer concerning the filing of domestic and foreign patent applications. CDC TTO staff work closely with NIH investigators and outside parties to facilitate commercialization efforts to benefit public health.
CDC’s predominant technologies are based on diagnostics tools, vaccines and occupational health and safety products. Inventions and technologies developed by CDC scientists and engineers have been licensed to commercial partners in many parts of the world. The CDC TTO is committed to providing user friendly access to newer and effective public health products and services.
