University of Arizona Revamping Underperforming Tech Transfer Program
Phoenix Business Journal
It's been no secret that University of Arizona's tech program has been underperforming, even though it had the advantages of having a medical school and land grant school status. Over the past few years, the university has made some crucial changes that offer better incentives for faculty researchers to commercialize their inventions. A couple of years ago, UA changed the name of its tech transfer program to Tech Launch Arizona, comprising an office of integrated teams that create an ecosystem of invention and commercialization.

Full STEAM Ahead: Inside Penn's Approach to Education
The Daily Pennsylvanian
Is emphasizing everything the same as emphasizing nothing? The University of Pennsylvania's choice of a STEAM approach to education — one that treats science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics equally — instead of a STEM approach has raised this question. This approach makes the School of Engineering and Applied Science unique and is one of the university's biggest selling points. As opposed to more technical schools like the Massachusetts Institute of Technology or the California Institute of Technology, Penn offers its students a more well-rounded, interdisciplinary education.

    Testing Chemotherapy's Effectiveness Early in Treatment
    AUTM
    During early stages of chemotherapy treatment, doctors can't predict whether a patient's tumor will die or survive. But at Laurentian University in Sudbury, Ontario, a serendipitous discovery may have changed that. The resulting test, licensed to Toronto, Canada-based Rna Diagnostics Inc., analyzes RNA to assess chemotherapy's effectiveness. It would allow doctors to identify patients who aren't benefiting from a specific chemotherapy regimen and switch those patients to another treatment — instead of continuing on a path that won't lead to improved health.
