The Office of Technology Transfer (OTT) serves as the liaison between Children's Hospital's basic and clinical research and the pharmaceutical and biotechnological industries. Its goal is to facilitate the development of products that advance medicine for the benefit of children and their families.

OTT is dedicated to providing the best service possible to Children's Hospital investigators by minimizing the time they spend on technology transfer-related matters, which in turn, enables them to focus on their research and clinical activities. The office manages and seeks commercial partners for intellectual property created at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Research Institute.
