Office of Innovation & Partnerships

Welcome to the Office of Innovation & Partnerships at LSU Health New Orleans.  We are located in Suite 818 on the 8th Floor of the Library, Administration, and Resource Center (433 Bolivar Street, New Orleans, Louisiana 70112).

The primary responsibility of the Office of Innovation & Partnerships is to advance innovation by serving the faculty, staff, and students; support the research enterprise; and partner with entrepreneurs and businesses to collaborate on translational research and commercialize inventions that enhance the economy and benefit the public.  We ask that you disclose innovations to our office before submitting manuscripts for publication or making other enabling disclosures outside of LSU.

In partnership with the Office of Research Services, we are charged with establishing and enabling the relationships necessary for certain aspects of research and collaboration to occur, including the negotiation of Material Transfer Agreements, Confidential Disclosure Agreements, and Inter-Institutional Agreements.

We are committed to fostering economic development for the New Orleans region and the State of Louisiana.  We encourage industry to contact us regarding licensing opportunities for LSU Health technology and potential research partnerships.
