New ITTC Annual Report is Online


(10-20-2010)


By Michelle Ward



We are recognizing students and their efforts throughout this year's Annual Report . At ITTC, our students apply what they are learning in the classroom to research. They gain practical experience by conducting experiments, analyzing data, and performing other necessary, but sometimes tedious, research. Critical to the success of ITTC, students are often our unsung heroes.

Not to be outdone, ITTC faculty researchers earned top honors. ITTC investigator Jun "Luke" Huan spearheaded a $4.6 million grant from the National Institutes of Health. It will provide a 20-fold boost in computing power to ITTC's Bioinformatics Computing Facility. Huan was highlighted last year for receiving a National Science Foundation Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award. This year ITTC researcher Prasad Kulkarni received the prestigious CAREER award to support his ongoing efforts to integrate teaching and research. At ITTC, Kulkarni is building more secure and better performing software systems.

Technology maturation and commercialization are natural outgrowths of innovative ITTC research. This maturation process allows us to prepare roll-out ready technologies. It is not enough to create transformative technologies; we need to get them into the hands of Kansas businesses and entrepreneurs. ITTC also offers applied research, technical consulting, product development, and other services to assist Kansans with IT challenges and opportunities.

Partner with ITTC

The Information and Telecommunication Technology Center at the University of Kansas has developed several assistance policies that enhance interactions between the Center and local, Kansas, or national companies. 

ITTC assistance includes initial free consulting (normally one to five hours). If additional support is needed, ITTC will offer one of the following approaches: 

Sponsored Research Agreement

Individuals and organizations can enter into agreements with KUCR/ITTC and provide funds for sponsored research to be performed at ITTC with the assistance of faculty, staff and students.

Licensing and Royalty/Equity Agreement

An ITTC goal is the development of investment-grade technologies for transfer to, and marketing by, local, Kansas, and national businesses. To enhance this process, the Center has developed flexible policies that allow for licensing, royalty, and equity arrangements to meet both the needs of ITTC and the company.

Commercialization Development

Companies with a technology need that can be satisfied with ITTC's resources can look to us for assistance. We can develop a relationship with interested partners that will provide for the development of a technology suited for commercialization.

ITTC Resource Access

ITTC resources, including computers and software systems, may be made available to Kansas companies in accordance with the Center's mission and applicable Regents and University policies.
