HU 12th , TAU 21st in biotech patent engineering

The Milken Institute ranks the Hebrew University of Jerusalem 12th and Tel Aviv University 21st in its survey of biotechnology patent rankings for universities. The survey, entitled "Mind to Market: A Global Analysis of University Biotechnology Transfer and Commercialization," encompassed 100 universities and assessed them by the number of patents published, level of innovation and the interest they generated in industry. US universities took the top five places. The University of Texas was in first place, followed by the University of California San Francisco, John Hopkins University, Stanford University, and Cornell University. The University of London came 10th followed by Harvard University and then the Hebrew University.

The Hebrew University is the second non-US university on the list while Tel Aviv University is the fifth.
