Celebrating the CTV Fellows Program

Dear Colleagues,

Happy new year to you and yours! With the open application period for the CTV Fellows Program coming up on February 11, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the past 7 years of leading the CTV graduate student Fellows.

As many of you know, the CTV Fellows Program offers Columbia graduate students a paid opportunity to help CTV understand and market the innovations emerging from Columbia’s research labs. Our roughly 30 Fellows each year work with us part-time during much of their graduate studies, helping prepare technology evaluations and non-confidential summaries of cutting edge research. Over the years, the 120 graduating Fellows alumni have gone on to distinguished careers in STEM fields and elsewhere, working for companies as diverse as Intel, IBM, Merck, Novartis, Apple, The Boston Consulting Group, McKinsey, Osage Ventures, various law firms, and in tech transfer at universities such as UCSF, U Washington, Albert Einstein, and UCLA. The CTV Fellows Program has been recognized as one of the foremost of its kind, and we’ve trained tech transfer officers from many other peer institutions on to how to run similar programs.

Applications for the Fellows program open February 11 and will be accepted through March 11. Interested in finding out more? We will be holding an informational session February 12. Use hashtag #CTVFellows on Twitter and Facebook to join the conversation!

As always, please also check out our upcoming events and lectures, the Spring semester IP for Entrepreneurs class, and new research and inventions in the works.

Best wishes for a great start to 2015!

Orin Herskowitz
Executive Director, CTV
VP for Intellectual Property & Technology Transfer
