G. Michael Alder is new director of BYU Technology Transfer Office

G. Michael Alder was recently appointed director of the Brigham Young University Technology Transfer Office, succeeding Lynn Astle, who has retired.

Alder spent the last nine years in Alabama, where he helped found and manage ten startup companies. He also served as executive director of the Biotechnology Association of Alabama and as CEO of Emerging Technology Partners.

Prior to his experiences in Alabama, Alder founded Native Plants, Inc., in Salt Lake City. He also worked under Utah Govs. Norm Bangerter and Mike Leavitt as the executive director of the Office of Technology Development.

“I want to help the faculty and students at this great institution to be as successful as possible to show the outside world what high quality technologies our BYU educational environment can produce,” Alder said.

The BYU Technology Transfer Office was established to aid students, faculty and staff in bringing technology developed through their association at BYU to the marketplace. The office provides expertise in such areas as intellectual property, license agreements, contracts and entrepreneurship.
