One of the Foundation’s missions is to transfer resulting medical research discoveries from the laboratory to the use of the general public by patenting and licensing such technology for development into drugs or other products. The following medical products, which have been developed utilizing discoveries by the Clayton Foundation or its supporting organizations, have been brought to market.
