Research Business Development
The Office of Research Business Development Connects investigators with Industry and other private collaborators. We offer guidance and support before, during and after the project.  We work in tandem with the Offices of Technology Transfer and Sponsored Projects Administration to help internal and external stakeholders access our rich expertise, explore research models and translate any unique discoveries into products and services that will transform the medical community.

Corporate, Foundation & Research Relations
As the demand for technology increases, so does the need for talented workers to meet the scientific, engineering and technical challenges of today’s society. Providing scholarships, serving as mentors, sponsoring a student group or taking on interns are all excellent examples of ways corporations can cultivate, educate and grow the next generation of scientists, engineers, and entrepreneurs. There are a number of ways for your company to get involved at Tulane. Whether contributing time or treasure, your participation deepens the relationship between your business and Tulane.
