Technology transfer usually takes place through traditional ways: teaching, publications and students. However, with the introduction of the Bayh Dole Act in the early 1980s, universities were encouraged to have their inventions flow directly to private industry and the marketplace through direct licensing of intellectual property to existing companies, or through the formation of start-up companies. Both of these paths depend on the creation and ownership of intellectual property - and meeting the missions of both parties is key to university/industry research relationships.

A physician or research scientist with a desire to work in a limited resource environment faces many challenges. Consideration must be given to economic and cultural values, cultural differences and norms specific to a particular population. These are important factors to consider when planning and conducting research and or practicing medicine. Support for activities we often take for granted, like running water, electricity, infectious diseases, and good transportation to name a few, can become significant barriers to success. Join Dr. Gustafson as he shares his personal experiences, successes and challenges.

Francesco Ceritelli, D.O., Professor of Cranial and
Sacrum Techniques, ICOM, International College of Osteopathic Medicine,
Research in osteopathy has been steadily rising during the last decade making quality of studies and results constantly more reliable. Different medical fields and age groups were selected to scientifically prove the clinical validity of osteopathic procedures. Upon that, few medical conditions have been demonstrated to clearly benefit of osteopathic treatment. Many others started to shed light on the possible role of osteopathy. The aim of this lecture is to provide a review of osteopathic research literature, critically evaluating studies published in all age groups and medical fields. Another objective is to create the basis to open profitable discussion and plan future projects considering the role of osteopathy in public health.
