Cornell Inventors and Entrepreneurship

Cornell inventors recognized for contributions to the university and the world. ‘Nanotech devices for biology research, a new way to pasteurize milk, improvements in cellular phone systems and new strawberry varieties were among the 41 patents issued to 32 Cornell inventors during fiscal year 2005-06. They were honored Oct. 24 in a recognition ceremony presented by the Cornell Center for Technology, Enterprise and Commercialization (CCTEC) in Statler Ballroom B. “Cornell has a long history of its faculty and staff inventing and receiving patents,” said Richard Cahoon, acting executive director of CCTEC. “Since Ezra Cornell received U.S. Patent No. 3456 on his ‘mole plow’ for laying telegraph cable, Cornell inventors have received hundreds of patents in many different technical fields. CCTEC is currently working with inventors at Cornell on the transfer of patented inventions to the commercial sector through licensing, so inventors and Cornell will realize the transformation of their research advancements to market innovations for the public good”.’
