Patents and Technology Transfer

The Research Foundation for the State University of New York (SUNY RF) no longer has an an official Technology Transfer Office.

ESF is pleased to have signed an agreement with Binghamton University to handle our Technology Transfer needs, including technical disclosures, patent applications and material transfer agreements. This initiative is part of a SUNY Research Foundation (RF) program of regionalization of technology transfer, formerly handled in Albany. The new approach, funded jointly by ESF and the RF, provides access to a skilled team in Binghamton. This includes Dr. Per Stromhaug, Executive Director, Entrepreneurship and Innovation Partnerships. Dr. Stromhaug is a trained molecular biologist and an experienced expert in patent matters. He will be on campus frequently to address our technology transfer needs, and already has begun to meet with our inventors in Binghamton or Syracuse.

Contact: Dr. Per Stromhaug at (607) 777-5873, per@binghamton.edu

Please contact Christopher T. Nomura for additional information regarding SUNY-ESF disclosures and patents.

See Sponsored Programs Data at SUNY RF for exact numbers and details.
