About the Massachusetts Technology Portal


The Massachusetts Technology Portal is a single website where one can search easily and efficiently for over 3,500 technologies available from 28 research institutions in Massachusetts:

  • Baystate Health, Inc.
  • Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center
  • Boston Biomedical Research Institute
  • Boston College
  • Boston University
  • Brandeis University
  • Brigham and Women’s Hospital
  • Caritas St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center
  • Children’s Hospital Boston

  • Mass Eye and Ear Infirmary
  • Massachusetts General Hospital
  • Massachusetts Institute of Technology
  • McLean Hospital
  • Northeastern University
  • Schepens Eye Research Institute
  • The Broad Institute

  • Tufts Medical Center
  • Tufts University
  • UMass Dartmouth

The portal was developed jointly with MATTO to provide entrepreneurs and investors with a convenient tool for finding intellectual property generated across a broad spectrum of Massachusetts universities and research hospitals. While many Technology Transfer Offices have search engines for their IP on their institution’s website, providing a single portal to the patents produced by our leading institutions enables users to identify the researchers, laboratories and institutions that have the inventions of interest quickly.

Portal Development

The Portal is a joint project of MATTO and the MTTC. The development and implementation of the portal has been paid for by the MTTC, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Boston Biomedical Research Institute, Boston University, Brandeis University, Caritas St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center, Boston Children’s Hospital, Dana Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard University, Joslin Diabetes Center, Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary, Massachusetts General Hospital, McLean Hospital, Northeastern University, The Schepens Eye Research Institute, and Tufts University.

The portal site was developed by Third Sky and via an agreement with iBridge.

MATTO is the Massachusetts Association of Technology Transfer Offices and represents all of the Commonwealth’s TTO’s.
