Patents and Royalties
In keeping with our charter to engage with industry, CHTM has been a leader in patenting at UNM. CHTM faculty, students, and staff are associated with 190 awarded UNM patents (as of January 2017), approximately 35% of the Science and Technology (STC.UNM) patent portfolio (and therefore 50% of the main campus patents excluding the Health Science Center). The graph below gives the distribution of these patents over the fields covered by CHTM research. As of mid- 2016, STC has realized over $9.25 M in patent revenue with several additional licensing agreements in progress.
