The University of Alabama System Board of Trustees approved a proposal for the development of an Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) during its meeting on Feb. 8, 2013. The UAB Research Foundation (UABRF), which currently manages technology transfer and intellectual property created by the UAB community, will now have an expanded presence and operate as the Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
Dugald Hall, Debbie Bidanset, Holly Meadows and David Winwood are a few of the UAB Research Foundation team members who can help researchers secure disclosures, protect intellectual property and file patent applications.
The University of Alabama at Birmingham today officially kicked off the public phase of The Campaign for UAB: Give Something, Change Everything, the university’s largest fundraising campaign to date, announcing an ambitious $1 billion goal. The campaign will run through 2018. “The theme reflects the fact that, when you give to UAB, you help us change our community and our world for the better, whether by finding the cure for a disease, enabling a bright young person to go to college or lighting the spark for a new innovation.”
