Intellectual Property: Focusing on Patents and Trademarks

As you pursue innovation, you will want to know about the intellectual property of others and you will want to protect your own.  We have guides:  

  • on how to find existing patents and trademarks.
  • and pointing to information about making an application to receive either a registered trademark or a U.S. patent.

Important note: Through the office of Discovery to Impact, the university offers valuable legal and marketing support for creators of the university's intellectual property.
