The Bayh-Dole Act gave universities the right to patent and market inventions made by faculty using government funds. The Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF) has been in the forefront of using this set of rights to commercialize faculty inventions. Senator Bayh spoke about the history of the adoption of the act and Carl Gulbrandsen discussed the impact and implications of the act for science, industry and the university followed by two success stories.
