“My UCLA TDG internship was immensely valuable because it allowed me to observe, in detail, the logistics and operations required to put licensing deals together. I was also able to gain experience critically evaluating university technologies and crafting non-confidential disclosures. These are skills used when evaluating potential partnering and in-licensing opportunities. Finally, I gained a lot of understanding regarding the patent application and prosecution process, which I continue to use to this day when managing the IP at our company. We continue to work with UCLA TDG hand in hand with all C3’s UC-owned technologies that we have licensed. There is no question that I have been able to accomplish more at my current position as a result of time at TDG.”
