Since first arriving on campus in 1974, Bruce Ganem, Franz and Elisabeth Roessler Professor of Chemistry, has been interested in economic development and technology transfer. "Coming from Stanford, I was surprised at how few inventions resulting from university research had been commercialized," he notes. Now, Ganem and cofounder Tony Eisenhut, Cornell '88, are trying to do something about it. They have founded KensaGroup, LLC, an intellectual property development business dedicated to the commercialization of promising university-based discoveries in the fields of chemistry, biochemistry, chemical engineering, and computational modeling.
