For Innovators

Commercialization Guide

Zhixiang Liao and Clemens Scherzer in laboratory

Mass General Brigham prioritizes the growth and efficiency of innovation and collaboration throughout our system.

The guides below are for Mass General Brigham employees interested in our commercialization process. These guides are intended to help orient both new and experienced innovators to policies and procedures from the simple question of “who do I contact?” to the more complex situations involving:

  • Intellectual property

  • Conflicts of interest

  • Contracting

  • Funding

As always, please contact the Innovation team with any questions about this process.

An online version of the Innovator’s Commercialization Guide is available at the Research Navigator site (Mass General Brigham login required).

If you’re not sure where to start with your idea, especially if it is your first innovation, learn more through our Quick Start Guide to commercialization below.
