This chapter discusses the experience of Robert Holton with the development of Taxol, a widely used and famously profitable drug for the treatment of breast and ovarian cancer in the 1980s. Though Holton's pioneering contributions to the development of the drug brought him and his home campus financial rewards, he also experienced a number of challenges throughout the process. The case of Holton shows that even in successful technology transfer friction between the parties sometimes develops along the route and progresses to conflict and even to litigation.

Keywords:   Robert Holton, Taxol, financial rewards, technology transfer, conflict, litigation
