Technology transfer

We are committed to translational medicine to ensure patient benefits. We have a strong track record of successful collaborative development projects with some of the most respected names from both the private and public sectors.

Technology transfer collaborations

The institute’s discovery pipeline is fed by more than 300 projects. A new patent application is filed every three weeks and the Institute’s intellectual property is the subject of more than 60 clinical trials currently being conducted worldwide.

The success of the institute is evidenced through the involvement in the creation of a number of institute start up companies and our many collaborative partnerships.

Partnering opportunities

We have a portfolio of projects potentially available for licensing or collaboration, that includes enabling technologies, drug targets, chemical and biological agents with proof of efficacy, through to projects in Phase II clinical development.

Training - Business internships and Catalyst Fund

The only one of its kind in Australia, the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute Business Development Internship Program aims to give young, talented scientists a competitive edge in an increasingly competitive global environment.

The Walter and Eliza Hall Institute Business Development Catalyst Fund is modelled on successful incubator or accelerator funds in academia in the US and Australia.
