Technology Developed at the University of Malta

The Knowledge Transfer Office aims to get technology developed at the University of Malta into the market place. This is an opportunity for companies to develop new products or services which they may not have the resources to develop from scratch.

This page lists technologies which are currently available to be licensed from the University. If a company is interested in making use of these technologies, the Knowledge Transfer Office will negotiate the licensing agreement and can further support the licensee in the management of the patenting process, further development work, technical support, applying for funds, and so on.

Co-Crystal Drugs

A new formulation for specific active pharmaceutical ingredients which does not alter the chemical properties of the drug, but gives new physical properties. 

For more information, click here.  

Molecular Probe

Molecular Probe

A class of molecules that simultaneously senses oxidisability (pE) and acidity (pH) of a solution by emitting fluorescence signal according to an AND logic.

For more information, click here

Medical Book for Foundation Studies in Medical and Academic English

A textbook for foundation students preparing to follow a degree in Medicine, Dentistry or Allied Health.
