The University of Iowa is a NSF I-Corps site managed by UIVentures and JPEC. Our program offers workshops to introduce faculty, staff, (and now) graduate students and postdocs to research commercialization. Their product or service, is called their intellectual property or IP, and is typically based on research discoveries or inventions achieved in a UI lab.
