COVID RESPONSE #CSUInvents

Colorado State University has committed to technology licensing principles intended to facilitate and maximize access to university innovations that can address the COVID-19 pandemic.  As part of the worldwide University technology transfer network, CSU is endorsing the licensing principles found at the Association of University Technology Managers (AUTM) website (COVID-19 Licensing Guidelines).

To that end, we have curated a list of technologies that we believe may be of value to those involved in mitigating the COVID-19 pandemic. We will add additional technologies as we receive them from CSU researchers and affiliated startups.
