HHS Lights up the World

The impact of the HHS Intramural Research Programs is truly global. The stars on the map represent locations where a commercial entity has completed a license with the NIH Technology Transfer community for an HHS intramural invention. These licenses allow for the transfer of inventions and discoveries from the HHS Intramural Research Programs to biotechnology companies for commercial development or use in research. 

The licenses on this map can be filtered by country of licensee, HHS Institute/Agency, and fiscal year that the license was executed. Densely populated areas are represented in clusters rather than stars. To view these areas, please zoom further into the map.
