covers founded by Cornell faculty, staff, students, or alumni.
Located in Tompkins County are nanotechnology and
biotechnology firms; high-tech materials testing, food development and testing,
and veterinary testing laboratories; software development firms; and many others.
Examples of their products include fuel cell technology for portable electronic
devices; foodservice and nutrition services software for the world's education,
entertainment, and medical industries; MEMs technology that is applicable in the
automotive, biotechnology, and consumer electronics industries; blood flowmeters
for medical research and surgical use; specialty chemicals and materials development
covering a wide range of high-tech uses; and food products. A community
such as this helps to sustain a solid economic base in the region, and at the same
time, advances growth and diversity in the state's economy.
This publication also includes other small companies that take Cornell's research
to practical fruition. These are companies that licensed Cornell technologies but
are located beyond the region. It also includes Weill Cornell Medical College's
Cornell's Research Serves the Region and Beyond: Small Business Development
illustrates how technology transfer is achieved through small business development.
It documents 110 small businesses with ties to Cornell's extensive academic resources--its people, research, and facilities. It offers many examples of how
Cornell's research serves the local community, as well as state, national, and global
communities. With $561 million (FY 2005) in research expenditures and start-up
companies translating research and technology into products and services, Cornell's
potential for serving the region through economic development as well as serving
the public in new and essential ways is extraordinary.|
