  1. Research Foundation for SUNY
  2. Stanford University
  3. Johns Hopkins University
  4. University of California- Irvine
  5. University of California- Berkeley

Protein was the top area of focus for the month. It was also the top area in July.

Who were the top inventors in August?

The most prolific inventor came from the Research Foundation for SUNY. And animal behavior and health were at the forefront for two of the top inventors.

Lorenz Neuwirth, an assistant professor of biopsychology, developmental behavioral neuroscience, and neuropsychology at SUNY-Old Westbury, had four tech transfer opportunities. Three out of four involved rodent behavior: 

  1. Light/Dark Box Social Interaction Test for Rodents
  2. Bowl Digging Paradigm Testing Apparatus with Tracking Procedures for Rodent Behavior
  3. Blood Lead Analyzer
  4. Rodent and Small Animal Retro-Orbital Bleeding Device

There were also three inventors with three tech transfers each for the month. They are:

Arash Kheradvar, a professor of biomedical engineering and mechanical and aerospace engineering at the University of California-Irvine.


Fawzy Elnady, an associate professor of anatomy and embryology at Virginia Tech.


Patanjali Parimi, a research professor in electrical engineering and computer science at Syracuse University.
