University of Florida Rank Among Top 100 Worldwide in Patents

The University of Florida (UF), along with the University of South Florida (USF) and the University of Central Florida (UCF) are setting the bar high by earning 218 patents altogether according to the Top 100 Worldwide Universities Granted U.S. Utility Patents in 2018. The report is published by the National Academy of Inventors (NAI) in partnership with the Intellectual Property Owners Association. Published annually since 2013, the report details patents issued to university inventors in the previous calendar year and recognizes the importance of patenting, licensing and commercialization in university research.

A good example of what UF researchers are accomplishing is the “Communication and Skills Training Using Interactive Virtual Humans” patent developed by UF startup Shadow Health. The technology enables nursing students to interact with lifelike, virtual patient avatars, developing communication and critical-thinking skills and improving their assessment and treatment of various health scenarios.
