During July-September 2016, The Innovation and Technology Transfer Management Office (ITTMO) at King Abdullah International Medical Research Center (KAIMRC) has conducted over ten meetings and workshops with different medical departments Including Department of Pediatric, Oncology, Emergency Medicine , Organ Transplant, Obstetrics & Gynecology , Family Medicine and Primary Health Care, ENT, and Dental Services in King Abdulaziz Medical City (KAMC) where we promoted ITTMO services and functions.
This step aims to encourage and guide the medical staff at KAMC, Riyadh on filing their invention applications along with the necessary forms. Additionally, it opens the door for MNG-HA affiliates, including faculty, researchers, and employees, to safeguard their intellectual properties, particularly patents having potential commercialization opportunities.
During the meeting, the speaker focused on the main activities that ITTMO performs and how the office could serve audience to safeguard their intellectual properties. Meetings ended with interactive Q & A session that was open to all staff of the department. ITTMO is currently planning on launching a series of similar workshops at all medical departments of MNG-HA hospitals in Jeddah, Alhasa, Dammam and Madinah as well as KSAU-HS colleges.
