Patrick E. Reed, Director of the Office of Technology Management (OTM) at LSU Health Sciences Center in New Orleans (LSU Health), has been a member of the Association of University Technology Managers (AUTM) and in the technology transfer profession since 2001. Offices in which he has worked include a public agricultural college (LSU AgCenter), an engineering powerhouse (Georgia Tech), and a public medical school (LSU Health).
In New Orleans, Patrick facilitates the commercialization of LSU Health’s novel research for public benefit; develops mutually beneficial relationships with industry; fosters local economic development through startup creation; and helps reward, retain, and recruit faculty. Recently, his role was expanded beyond traditional technology transfer to include growing industry partnerships. Already working with industry on a daily basis, the transition to more of a one-stop-shop was effortless and helps minimize the number of gatekeepers between industry partners and LSU Health’s faculty.
Patrick earned a Master of Science degree in biotechnology from the Kellogg Center for Biotechnology at Northwestern University and has been awarded the Registered Technology Transfer Professional (RTTP) designation.
