The Office for Technology Transfer and Industry Collaboration (OTTIC) hosted its inaugural Inventor Recognition Event on October 18th, 2019. A luncheon was organized to honor faculty who have had a first-in-family US patent issued in fiscal year 2019 and faculty whose intellectual property was licensed or optioned to a commercial entity in fiscal year 2019. Vice Provost for Research Caroline Genco presented the honorees with their awards. Alongside OTTIC staff, deans and department chairs were also in attendance to congratulate their faculty awardees. The OTTIC hopes to make this event an annual celebration of the entrepreneurial spirit at Tufts.
