Indigo Agriculture: Commercializing Microbes for Healthier, More Productive Crop Plants

Made It Happen: From Research to Invention to Impact
Lunch-and-Learn Discussions with Entrepreneurial UA Researchers

Presenters:

A. Elizabeth (Betsy) Arnold, PhD, Professor, School of Plant Sciences, College of Agriculture & Life Sciences (CALS), Inventor
Tod McCauley, PhD, Tech Launch Arizona Sr. Licensing Manager, CALS

In 2014, based on her research in plant-associated fungi and how they serve ecosystems as pathogens and symbionts, Dr. Arnold came to Tech Launch Arizona with an idea for applying strategically tailored bacteria and fungal partnerships for specific industrial and medical applications. Today, the invention has been developed and licensed to Indigo Agriculture, and the company will take it to market where it can create impact for the public good.

Join us as we hear from Dr. Arnold about her experience identifying and defining the invention, and working through the commercialization process with Tech Launch Arizona. Tod McCauley, TLA Sr. Licensing Manager for CALS, will moderate our discussion.

Please register on the TLA website by October 15. Refreshments will be provided. If you have dietary restrictions, please feel free to bring your own snacks.

Zoom info will be provided to those who register for remote participation.
