Patrick E. Reed Director of the Office of Technology Management
LSU Health Sciences Center in New Orleans


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.
