What if I created my idea or invention using significant resources without a faculty member and want to pursue it on my own?

If you believe you have an idea or invention which may be patentable, and there are no faculty co-inventors, contact OTC to discuss your situation.  Once you have determined the final inventors on your Innovation and there are no faculty inventors, and no external obligations to a corporate sponsor or governent funding agency, you may disclose your invention to OTC  and confirm that the idea or invention is yours. Assuming you pursue filing a patent application, the IP will be yours. OTC can assist in guiding you through the translational process as needed.
