The TI:GER program at Georgia Tech teaches students that the main hurdles to commercializing research are seldom technology-related. More often they involve legal issues and problems interfacing with the public and market. TI:GER takes an interdisciplinary approach to surmounting those obstacles, assembling students who win acceptance into the highly competitive program into five member teams. These teams include two MBAs and two law students who focus on the commercialization of a PhD student's research over a two-year period.

***This program is supported by Georgia CTSA and is administered by Georgia Institute of Technology.
