This chapter focuses on the University of Wisconsin-Madison's technology-transfer organization which is called Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF). It explains that WARF has returned more than $800 million to the university from patents derived from research in campus laboratories and it provides the university with $55 million a year for research. Despite this, university official Timothy Mulcahy believes that the university's dual commitment to traditional academic research values and the commercialization of its research created tensions.
