Industry Partnerships & Commercialization


We help researchers, physicians and scientists transfer their knowledge into products and programs that have social and economic benefit. We also help match industry professionals with researchers to foster complementary business relationships. IP&C can provide assistance with any of the following areas of interest:

  • Assessment of invention disclosure/ideas for commercialization potential
  • Development and commercialization of SickKids intellectual property assets
  • Management and protection of SickKids intellectual property assets through patents and copyrights
  • Industry relations (including marketing and promotion)
  • Negotiation of business terms and payment compliance
  • Identification and marketing of SickKids research expertise in basic and clinical research
  • Identification of alternate sources of funding for development and commercialization
  • Proactively work with both SickKids researchers and industry representatives to identify areas for research collaborations
