    Collapse Overview
    Lindsay serves as a business development and licensing manager within Innovation Ventures, helping UCSF faculty members and inventors protect intellectual property that arises from their research. She works with faculty and staff to develop appropriate protection strategies that support commercialization of innovative technologies through licensing to both startups and established companies.

    Lindsay holds a BS in Mechanical Engineering from Washington State University and is an Honors College alumna. She received an MBA from the University of Massachusetts Amherst's Isenberg School of Management and obtained her Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Utah where her research focused on developing instrumentation and algorithms for faster PCR and more accurate high-resolution DNA melting. After completing her Ph.D., Lindsay worked in healthcare and industry, first at Baylor Scott & White Health and then at Canon as a Senior Scientist/Engineer within R&D and Product Development. Before transitioning to her current role at UCSF, Lindsay worked as a Licensing Director for Engineering within Technology Commercialization Services at the University of Connecticut.

    Lindsay appreciates the opportunity to play a part in helping to transition research into products and services that can provide real-world benefit. She enjoys helping faculty and staff commercialize new technologies while supporting UCSF’s mission of advancing health worldwide.

    Altmetrics Details PMC Citations indicate the number of times the publication was cited by articles in PubMed Central, and the Altmetric score represents citations in news articles and social media. (Note that publications are often cited in additional ways that are not shown here.) Fields are based on how the National Library of Medicine (NLM) classifies the publication's journal and might not represent the specific topic of the publication. Translation tags are based on the publication type and the MeSH terms NLM assigns to the publication. Some publications (especially newer ones and publications not in PubMed) might not yet be assigned Field or Translation tags.) Click a Field or Translation tag to filter the publications.
