    Kennesaw State launches Office of Intellectual Property Development

    June 09, 2021

    “For all that researchers do well – from identifying problems to generating world-altering solutions – they often struggle to see their research reach its full potential by placing it in the hands of consumers,” Chris Cornelison said, serving as the director of KSU’s Office of Intellectual Property Development. The office, launched as a unit within the Office of Research, acts as a one-stop shop for university researchers looking to advance their discoveries.
