This chapter discusses the changing of attitude of researchers towards the commercialization of academic research in the U.S. It explains that it has become a norm for professors to sell their expertise off campus or perform industry-financed research in their university laboratories. Many companies, particularly big pharmaceutical firms, have become dependent on academic research, either through financing of research or buying start-ups of academic entrepreneurs.

Keywords:   academic research, researchers, commercialization, U.S., pharmaceutical firms, start-ups, academic entrepreneurs
