I-Corps@Ohio adds CWRU to governance board; two employees to serve on board

I-Corps@Ohio, an initiative from the Ohio Department of Higher Education, has expanded Case Western Reserve University, as well as Cleveland Clinic and Wright State University, to its governance board.

Two CWRU representatives will serve on the board: Stephen Fening, director of the Case-Coulter Translational Research Partnership, and Wayne Hawthorne, senior licensing manager in the Office of Technology Transfer.

Supported by the Ohio Department of Higher Education, I-Corps@Ohio is a statewide, university-based technology evaluation and development program that qualifies market entry strategies for new scientific discoveries and trains research scientists and student entrepreneurs in the advanced principles of technology entrepreneurship and commercialization.
