Tailored Office Hours – FFMI commercialization experts will come to your department and hold 10-15 minute focused consultations with interested faculty. Faculty will come away from an appointment with a commercial assessment of their research and a suggested path of suitable resources available at the U-M and beyond. If you would like to schedule office hours for your department, please contact Michelle Larkin at michcote@umich.edu.

Idea Consultation

An Idea Consultation is your chance to meet with an FFMI commercialization expert to explore how your research can translate out of the university, onto a successful path to commercialization, and eventually impact patients.

In your Idea Consultation we’ll talk with you about…

  • Your research/technology, the current status of any intellectual property, and where you are in the development path
  • Collaborators you’re working with, both inside and outside of U-M
  • Using customer discovery to test your key hypotheses
  • The regulatory process for your technology
  • Possible sources of funding and support
