Sweating the small stuff – 09/08/08
From the article: While many university researchers tap the expertise of their school's technology transfer office to launch a business, Mr. Mirkin, 44, took a different path. As with all technology developed under its roof, Northwestern holds the patents behind Nanosphere's machines and had the right to claim the intellectual property. But once the school passed on licensing that technology to an outside company and decided against forming a new business to take advantage of it, the rights reverted to Mr. Mirkin, he says... Mr. Mirkin got help instead from Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management, where four graduate students took on the company as a class project and created a business plan for it.
