From July 1, 2011, to June 30, 2012, Purdue Research Foundation officials reported 356 invention disclosures, 446 patent applications worldwide, 95 issued patents worldwide and the creation of five startups from Purdue-licensed technologies. "Purdue faculty, staff and students strive to make people's lives healthier, happier or more productive when they develop new products and processes," said Elizabeth Hart-Wells, assistant vice president and director of the Purdue Office of Technology Commercialization. "The issuance of patents to protect intellectual property increases the potential this work will be translated into products and services for the public. The number of patents issued to Purdue-related discoveries has more than tripled from 31 in 2007-2008, which is a credit to the innovative faculty, staff, post-doctorate students and graduate students throughout the university's campuses."
