The Patent Bracket: See which team would win the tournament based on total inventions
ChicagoInno
A deep run in this month's NCAA tournament could be worth millions of dollars to a school, as March success can spur enrollment, alumni donations, and the opening of public funds. And though it's played out on a much smaller stage, that's nothing compared to what innovators can bring to campus, with a game-changing discovery in a university lab potentially resulting in billions.

That's why this year, ChicagoInno looked at the 68 tourney teams through the lens of invention, determining who wins every matchup by the number of patents a university has filed. The University of Texas, which benefits from being at the center of a large state system, tops the bracket with 2,325 patents.

Better World Project Featured Story
AUTM
At many veterinary and medical schools, students still practice suturing techniques on orange peels, pig feet or fabric. To improve that educational experience, surgeons at the College of Veterinary Medicine and Biomedical Science at Colorado State University developed a multilayer silicone suture pad that mimics live tissue — and founded a company called SurgiReal. Read more in "Veterinary Surgeons Make Suture Training More Like the Real Thing."

Then take a minute to enter a technology from your institution for a chance to be one of the Featured Stories. Or, create a customized report of the stories from your institution that may be already in the database.
