Our goal is to benefit society through the commercialization of technologies for the public good
ISURF works closely with OIPTT to protect research innovations and work with companies to advance these innovations to make them ready for commercial use. The transfer of technology from the lab to the marketplace lies at the core of Iowa State University’s land-grant mission.
