Paths to Innovation

For more than 30 years, U.S. universities have had the right to commercialize discoveries made through faculty research funded by the federal government. For a time, few universities made much of the opportunity. But today, as funding support for higher education is increasingly imperiled, marketing great ideas has never been more popular --- or more crucial. Three UNLV projects show how research benefits the university, the business community, and you.
