Our Mission

Our mission is to create a “bridge” between UMass Chan Medical School and the external life science ecosystem to support innovative research, protect intellectual property, and facilitate commercialization to help our community, the Commonwealth and the world.

BRIDGE Innovation & Business Development serves as the hub of all commercialization activities at the UMass Chan Medical School. It facilitates intellectual property protection, business opportunity development, technology licensing, and new-enterprise creation.  

We are committed to promptly and effectively facilitating the commercial development of intellectual property arising at the Medical School.
