LSU AgCenter Scientists' Inventions Go to Market

By Dirk Benedict, LSU AgCenter

LSU AgCenter scientists continue to bring scientific discoveries to the world marketplace through the Office of Intellectual Property. Since the inception of the office, new companies have been started based on licensing technology from the AgCenter, and established companies have been able to introduce new products to the world. Royalties from these companies and from other licensing agreements have generated tens of millions of dollars since 1999.
