Sylvia R. and Isador A. Deutch Center for Applied Technology Development
City of Hope conducts basic research that produces valuable intellectual property, which is translated into new products, new businesses and new jobs.
 
The Sylvia R. and Isador A. Deutch Center for Applied Technology Development (CATD) offers broad expertise in technology transfer and licensing, biologics manufacturing, quality assurance and regulatory affairs. It also fosters commercial investment in the development of inventions and discoveries derived from research at City of Hope by licensing the relevant intellectual property. Through evaluation, marketing and licensing processes, CATD supports this goal by ensuring that technologies created at City of Hope are developed and commercialized for the benefit of the widest possible audience.
 
Among its many activities, CATD also hosts conferences for venture capitalists, at which City of Hope investigators present their findings to potential funding sources.
 
Our Office of Technology Licensing (OTL) actively pursues patent protection for new inventions devised by its investigators deemed of commercial importance. Further, the OTL licenses intellectual property (IP) via Internet marketing, targeted marketing and inquiries by outside interested parties.
 
The Center for Biomedicine & Genetics (CBG) is a premier academic facility specializing in rapid production of pharmaceutical-grade materials. CBG invites collaborators from other institutions and biopharmaceutical companies to test promising new therapeutics, and supports phase I and II clinical trials at City of Hope.
 
The Office of IND Development and Regulatory Affairs helps campus investigators interact with governmental regulatory agencies and remain in compliance with United States Food and Drug Administration requirements.
 
City of Hope is a designated Production Assistance for Cellular Therapies (PACT) facility. We partner with researchers to help carry potential new cell-based therapies from laboratory research to clinical study. Researchers interested in partnering can contact Larry Couture, Ph.D., for more information.
