Michigan Universities Commercialization Initiative (MUCI)
MUCI is a collaboration designed to complement and enhance the technology transfer at Michigan academic and research institutions by supporting commercialization of Intellectual Property. For more information about its mission and members, please contact the MUCI Business Manager at or visit:

Michigan Initiative for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (MIIE)
MIIE builds on Michigan's universities as economic assets by speeding the commercialization of university research while promoting a culture of entrepreneurial risk-taking. The initiative partners Michigan's philanthropic resources with university and private business resources to help launch start-up companies, and strengthen ties between small business, industry and academia.

University Research Corridor
The University Research Corridor is an alliance of Michigan’s three leading research institutions: Michigan State University, the University of Michigan and Wayne State University. Each of us features complete graduate and undergraduate education, as well as professional degrees in medicine, business and the law. Our research laboratories produce hundreds of patents each year, and our hospitals develop innovative medical treatments that save lives.
