WMU Technology Transfer in the News

The Kalamazoo Gazette published an article discussing Western’s new technology transfer office.  The article by Paula M. Davis is entitled “From Lab to Marketplace WMU Focuses on Turning Research into a Money-Maker” and was published in the Monday, November 27, 2006 issue.

The article discusses how more and more professors at WMU are exploring the commercial potential of their discoveries.  This generates patents, and in some cases, dollars for WMU.  The office of technology transfer was started to assist professors with this process.   WMU Engineering professors Massood Atashbar (Electrical and Computer Engineering), Bruce Bejcek (Biological Sciences), and David Meade (Manufacturing Engineering) are mentioned specifically.
