This past year was a banner year for technology commercialization at UNT, but it’s only the beginning. Licensing revenues reached a record level in 2019, and faculty filed six times as many disclosures of inventions and intellectual property as they did in 2015. More importantly, the culture of innovation at UNT is changing. UNT researchers are looking at the work in their laboratories in new and creative ways, and technology created here is catching the eye of companies and potential investors.

Mark R. McLellan, a 30-year leader of university research programs with experience at five major institutions, was selected to oversee research and innovation at UNT as it seeks to grow its research enterprise and cement its place among the nation’s top Tier One research universities.
