For Innovators

Invention Disclosure

Research Center for Engineering Medicine Lab, Massachusetts General Hospital

This is the starting point to request evaluation of an invention or discovery for Mass General Brigham employees.

You should protect your invention by documenting your ideas in writing, using an invention disclosure form. To preserve worldwide patent rights for your idea, a patent application must be filed with the patent office prior to sharing your ideas in a public forum, publication, internet abstract, poster, or any forum that includes external people.
