I Have an Idea! Inventions, Data Sharing, and & Other IP Considerations



NIH-funded research can result in valuable data, inventions, publications, and other resources. However, to make the most of your research, there are rules and policies for how to properly manage those resources. This session will provide guidance on what to do with discoveries and inventions to safeguard those valuable intellectual property rights that you develop with NIH funds at your institution. In addition, an NIH expert will explain how to share NIH-funded data and other research resources to advance research in your field for benefits to the public and public health.

Upon completion of this session, participants will be able to:

  • explain what intellectual property is and the importance of protecting it;
  • provide an understanding of what the Bayh-Dole statute requires, when it requires reporting and by whom;
  • identify the NIH policy requirements for the sharing of data and other intellectual property that NIH funded; and
  • describe the 4-types of Bayh-Dole waiver of ownership are and what is required to request a waiver.
