The Office of Technology Transfer's (OTT) primary mission is to enable NIEHS researchers to more effectively partner with their counterparts in academia, nonprofit organizations, and the private sector to deliver innovations that will benefit human health.
The LeaSH-RNA-seq technology uses sample-specific barcoded indexes that detect both SARS-COV-2 virus and the host’s transcriptional response to infection. We are currently seeking prospective partners for licensing and collaborative development. Technology abstract is found on our Licensing Opportunities page.
