Promotions within the Office of Technology Transfer Widen Opportunities for BME Entrepreneurship

Gail Norris, formerly the director of the Office of Technology Transfer (OTT) for the College of Arts, Sciences and Engineering, will assume a newly created position of vice-provost of the OTT. Former deputy director Corine Farewell has been promoted to director of the office. The promotions underscore the University's commitment to increase the commercialization of research and design by staff and students.

In the past, Farewell has worked closely with the Department of Biomedical Engineering's senior design classes to help students learn how to protect intellectual property while presenting their projects to industry and the community.
