The MIT Technology Licenses Office welcomes companies to get to know us personally. We find it most effective to work individually with a company to identify specific areas of interest. We then bring inventions, which specifically match the company's interests to the attention of the company. With 500 new invention disclosures coming into our office each year, our portfolio is constantly changing. The technologies highlighted here do not encompass our entire portfolio. We therefore encourage companies to keep in touch on a regular basis and also to contact us when a particular technology need arises.
Our technology is usually early stage and often requires substantial development by the licensing company before a commercial product is ready for market. Because of this, we often find that the best contact person from the company is one who is knowledgeable about the company's science and technology and also familiar with the long-term strategic plans of the company.
16513 – Monolayers of layered transition metal dichalcogenides (LTMDs) exhibit significant spin-valley coupling and optoelectronic performances that make them ideal materials for valley-based optoelectronic applications. This invention describes a method of synthesizing MoS, a material with great potential for logic devices integrated circuits and optoelectronics, by way of the chemical... Read More
15898 – Layered transition metal dichalcogenides (LTMD), such as MS, have applications in flexible electronics and optoelectronics, hybrid heterostructures with 2D materials, advanced semiconductor devices and integrated circuits, short-channel devices, valleytronics devices, battery and supercapacitors, and energy harvesting issues such as water splitting and hydrogen production. The... Read More

17695 – Structurally stabilized Mcl-1-binding peptides may be useful in treating a variety of chemotherapy-resistant cancers such as adult acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) and acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL).
15867 – The layer-by-layer (LbL) assembly of responsive, functional thin films has applications in catalysis, optics, energy, reactive membranes, and biomaterials. The high-throughput, low-cost nature of capillary flow layer-by-layer (CF-LbL) makes the technology accessible to a broader scientific community. It is particularly suited for the creation of libraries of LbL films and for screens in... Read More
17072 – Methods to prevent and treat stress-associated disorders. This invention could be of great interest to any pharmaceutical company that manufactures or develop serotonin 2c receptor (5-HT2CR) antagonists such as agomelatine. Currently there are no pharmaceuticals that can be used to prevent the exacerbation or development of stress-sensitive mental illnesses. Consequently,... Read More
17680 – Tube thoracostomy for the treatment of chest trauma such as hemothorax or pneumothorax In the current standard care thoracostomy procedure, physicians insert a chest tube by blunt dissection with surgical tools, relying on experiences and tactile feel to detect entrance into the pleural cavity. This current procedure suffers a 10 to 20% complication rate due to the incorrect... Read More
16277 – Currently, stimulation of deep brain structures to ameliorate treatment-resistant symptoms of psychiatric and neurological disorders can only be achieved through permanently implanted electrodes. Acoustic, electromagnetic induction, or optical signals have also been explored in the field of neuromodulation, but they are largely absorbed and scattered by surrounding tissues,... Read More
17602 – A non-invasive tool to detect oxygenation level changes in the placenta and fetal organs; useful for detection of placental insufficiency for intra-uterine growth restriction (IUGR) cases, and for characterization of placenta share and blood transfusion between twin fetuses for twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS) cases. Adequate oxygen transport across the placenta from... Read More
16424 – Medical ultrasonic imaging for detecting viscosity abnormalities, which are typically caused by serious internal injuries, such as contusion, internal bleeding, traumatic brain injury, and concussive organ damage. There is a critical need to perform medical diagnostics for civilians and war fighters in the field to determine if serious internal injury has occurred. However,... Read More
