Over the past 15 years, the NYS Science + Technology Law Center at Syracuse University College of Law—now called the Innovation Law Center—has helped hundreds of manufacturers and researchers in their quest to commercialize emerging technology.
At the Law Center’s core is the Technology Commercialization Law Program, which was established in 1990 as the first program in the country to combine science and technology development with legal analysis and hands-on experience. In 2004, Empire State Development’s Division of Science, Technology & Innovation (NYSTAR) saw the unique value of TCLP and established the Law Center to leverage the experience and expertise of law faculty and students to assist even more New York companies and institutions.
Among those helped was a researcher at the State University of New York for Environmental Science and Forestry (EFS) who found a way to use a unique polymer to support tissue generation in the human body.
