Accelerate Breakthrough Research – From Discovery to Commercialization
A fundamental challenge in cancer research is how to bring the best ideas to the marketplace, as complex intellectual property and patent processes can be hard to navigate. Enter PICI. Our legal experts and financial support help our investigators turn their discoveries into treatments. We evaluate a discovery’s potential, ensure patent applications are compelling, and help optimize and negotiate licensing. This catalyzes their discoveries to make a real impact for patients faster.
