This chapter discusses the experience of Robert M. Dickson, an associate professor in the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry at Georgia Tech, in terms of the commercialization of academic research. It explains that Dickson worked with biomedical company Invitrogen to develop a medical diagnostic system using atom-size clusters of gold and silver that can cling to cancer cells and help produce in vivo images of the cells at the molecular level. Unlike Robert Holton, Dickson had a congenial partnership with the company that had licensed his research.
