Centre for Cellular and Molecular Biology: The Commercialization Challenge
(10 pages of text)
This case deals with the commercialization challenges that a premier research institute in an emerging economy faces despite conducting cutting-edge research. The case is set in 2009 in Hyderabad, India, soon after the appointment of CCMB’s new director, Dr. Mohan Rao. Rao has to decide how to proceed with incentivizing the scientists to find potential applications for their research when most scientists are merely interested in doing basic research and when, at the same time, the government is increasing its emphasis on the use of public science for societal good. The case also deals with the role of commercialization and technology transfer, publishing versus patenting, basic versus translation sciences, and incentives.
The objectives of the case include:
- Understanding the concept of public research (government funded) in emerging markets.
- Developing a framework for the commercialization of technology.
- Identifying drivers/incentives to motivate scientists to pursue commercialization.
