An Arizona professor has invented a flexible carbon fiber fabric designed to be inserted inside and around a fractured bone. The technology has been licensed to a startup and has already received venture capital funding to take it forward. 
In 1988, Barry J. Glick, Ph.D., started a software company around locational data and map visualization. That company grew to become Mapquest. Now Glick has joined TLA and is mentoring UA technology entreprneurs. Get to know him in this Q&A. 
Fletcher McCusker, champion of UA students, research, innovation and entrepreneurship, will be recognized this fall at the Governor’s Celebration of Innovation Awards as the Arizona Technology Council Ed Denison Business Leader of the Year.
The UA broke ground on a bioscience startup incubator this month with nearly 300 people in attendance. The UA Center for Innovation at Oro Valley will provide space and programs for nascent life science businesses to develop their technology enterprises.
Why disclose inventions?
"We want to have the technologies that we work on, that we create at this university, to help people. And the only way to do that is to create a culture of innovation."
