keith-marmer
The University of Utah announced today that Keith Marmer has been selected as executive director of Technology and Venture Commercialization, the university’s intellectual property and technology commercialization office.

Marmer, a leading candidate from the beginning of the search process, was selected from a pool of exceptional applicants. He joins the U with considerable experience in technology commercialization, entrepreneurship and venture capital. He previously served as the chief business officer at the Penn Center for Innovation at the University of Pennsylvania, where he led the Center’s day-to-day commercialization activities. Prior to this, Marmer directed Penn State College of Medicine’s technology commercialization office and served as an associate dean for research innovation. Marmer has also founded and led four companies, his latest being a venture capital firm that targets early stage life science companies.

“Technology commercialization has enjoyed a bright history at the U,” said Andrew Weyrich, vice president for research. “Keith is determined to build upon this success to further enhance TVC, which is already in the upper echelons of technology commercialization operations. Our selection process involved hundreds of applicants, was rigorous and comprehensive and we are excited to recruit Keith. The selection committee and I overwhelmingly believe that his breadth of university experience combined with his strong history of entrepreneurship is the right combination needed to catalyze technology commercialization efforts at the U.”

NO VEHICLES ALLOWED ON THE MARRIOTT PLAZA

marriott-plaza
The Marriott Plaza is a roof. It is unsafe for vehicles to drive in this area as it is a highly used pedestrian plaza and vehicle traffic has the potential to harm the roof. Facilities Management is adding bollards in the area to deter vehicles. Other than food trucks, that have been given specific and safe pathways and areas to park, vehicular traffic in this area is prohibited and cart traffic is highly discouraged.

Please use caution in this densely used area and be kind and courteous to others.
