Tech transfer is a highly competitive field with much opportunity for growth. While TTOs across the country continue to experience high turnover and recruitment challenges, tech transfer professionals are demanding better work/life balance, pay commensurate with their experience and location, as well as non-monetary benefits. A perfect storm is brewing for TTOs to retain current and attract new staff, while struggling to compete with private sector employers.
