Tech Launch Arizona, the office of the UA that commercializes inventions stemming from researchers, honored an array of researchers at the sixth annual I-Squared Awards and Expo.
BME professor and BIO5 director Jennifer Barton was named campus collaborator of the year. The BIO5 Institute supports and encourages faculty engagement in the commercialization process, and as its director, Barton has long been a champion of these efforts.
"Things can only really help people if they get out there into the marketplace and are successful as a product," Barton said. "That's what I think is exciting."
