Patent Roll Call: 2019-2021

Congratulations to these UMN researchers who were awarded patents for their discoveries! From 2019 to 2021, UMN researchers were issued 386 US patents (foreign patents not included). 

Receiving a patent is an intellectual achievement for any researcher and a key commercialization milestone. A patent allows a discovery to be shared with the rest of the world and advances innovation in and across important fields and industries, including health care, the environment, education, and food production. 

US patent listings are publicly available through the USPTO Patent Public Search. See these Resources for Inventors to learn more about the UMN technology commercialization and patent process.
