Open Therapeutics Receives Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation’s Dormant Intellectual Property.

 

The intellectual property is available on the scientific collaboration platform, Therapoid™.

 

Minneapolis, MN– August 7, 2018 – Open Therapeutics LLC, a scientific collaboration platform company, received dormant intellectual property (IP) from the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation (OMRF).

 

According to Jason E. Barkeloo, Founder and Chair of Open Therapeutics, “Open Therapeutics in-licenses and accepts dormant, orphan, and abandoned IP from institutions and organizations around the world. That IP is freely provided to scientists on the Therapoid™ platform. Along with grants, lab equipment, communication tools, manuscript development tool, career opportunities, and preprint server, researchers can collaborate with peers to advance the freely provided IP.”

 

The OMRF IP available in Therapoid™ ranges from proteins and a central nervous system treatment for Alzheimer’s, to novel multiple sclerosis (MS) treatments and pluripotent stem cells.

 

According to Jerome Hamilton, “We are pleased to represent this intellectual property from the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation as we do our part in making the world a better place with therapeutic discoveries. Open Therapeutics will continue to add value for scientists while facilitating a world class experience as they collaborate with their peers on the Therapoid™ platform.”

How open science helps researchers succeed
Open access, open data, open source, and other open scholarship practices are growing in popularity and necessity. However, widespread adoption of these practices has not yet been achieved. One reason is that researchers are uncertain about how sharing their work will affect their careers. We review literature demonstrating that open research is associated with increases in citations, media attention, potential collaborators, job opportunities, and funding opportunities. These findings are evidence that open research practices bring significant benefits to researchers relative to more traditional closed practices.
