Translating UCLA research, discoveries and inventions into public benefit



UCLA’s portfolio includes more than 1,000 active U.S. patents, and the number continues to increase. Campus research is licensed by established companies and start-ups alike. “Sandboxes” and incubators encourage faculty, researchers and students to explore the commercial possibilities of their discoveries, and to learn from colleagues across campus.

A robust entrepreneurial ecosystem continues to grow and expand, providing tools and resources for students, faculty, and industry. No wonder the Milken Institute ranks UCLA number 1 in the U.S. for the number of startup companies launched based on campus research.
