Cincinnati Children’s Employees are Innovators
We are all caregivers, and each of us has the potential to make a difference for patients and families. As a Cincinnati Children's employee, you also have the potential to innovate, such as inventing new products or ways of improving child health and care delivery.
Cincinnati Children’s Innovation Ventures is focused on translating your laboratory and clinical discoveries into products that provide hope and miracles for kids.
Our team collaborates with all research divisions and areas of the institution to promote, support, and advance translational research. Our Portfolio Managers provide guidance to identify and develop projects that may have commercial value. We do this through:
- Identification and Protection of Intellectual Property*
- Innovative Funding Programs
- Partnerships and Collaborations with Industry (Pharma, Biotech and Medtech), Venture and Foundations
- Agreement Management
*It is critical that we learn about your research before it is disclosed publicly. If you are preparing an abstract, manuscript, presentation or poster, or if you are speaking with an industry contact or a search firm, these are examples of public disclosure. Please contact us in order to ensure that your idea is protected, as appropriate.
