The Institute collaborates with many public and private institutions. The most common collaboration involves the submission of compounds or extracts to be tested at UIC for in vitro and in vivo anti-TB activity. 

The most common arrangements include but are not limited to those involving:

  • shared structures, co-authored publications, (in some cases conditional) shared IP or a licensing agreement or
  • fee for service work with the supplier retaining all IP

A secure project web portal can be setup using our Basecamp account for easy transfer of information and data.
