What we do


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:

  • Assess invention disclosures/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)
  • Contract negotiation and payment compliance
  • Identify and market SickKids research expertise in basic and clinical research
  • Identify alternate sources of funding for development and commercialization
  • Proactively meet with both SickKids researchers and industry representatives to identify areas of mutual interest
  • Create collaborations between industry and SickKids researchers at various stages of the research and development cycle
