UAMS Patent and Copyright Committee
The UAMS Patent and Copyright Committee functions to implement the University of Arkansas Patent and Copyright Policy (Board Policy 210.1) at UAMS. The Committee provides a review process for disclosures of patent, copyright, and other intellectual property developed by members of the UAMS community. The Committee evaluates the patentability and desirability of obtaining patent or other protection for the submitted disclosures as well as any patent obligations to research sponsors outside of the University. Recommendations by the Committee are submitted to the Chancellor.
