UNeMed now serves as the technology transfer entity for both the UNO and UNMC campuses. As such, the UNeMed office serves to evaluate, protect, and commercialize inventions disclosed to it from UN faculty, staff, and students.
UNeMed evaluates over 70 new inventions per year, manages a patent portfolio of over 300 patents and patent applications, and maintains over 90 active commercial license agreements. UNeMed also works to identify industrial collaborators that fund research for UN faculty, bringing in over $2M in sponsored research over the past two years alone to fund further development of UN technologies.
