Keith & Russ talk with David Cocke, Associate Director of the Center for Innovation, Commercialization and Entrepreneurship (CICE). CICE is helping universities get more involved in commercializing their research & technology. David explains that universities often are mandated to produce research & technology which will create jobs, and critical funds are dependent on that output. He also talks about why it's important for scientists & engineers to have a business background if they want to commercialize their technology. David also talks about "Fast Forward," a wound healing accelerant currently being developed for animals with hopes to have it approved for humans. https://www.facebook.com/CICELU
