Partnership between WraSer & Ole Miss

UM Researcher Featured at IP Forum
The University of Mississippi was among the five leading research institutions represented at the inaugural MRC/MTA Intellectual Property Forum and Technology Expo, held November 30-December 1 in Jackson. Among the spotlighted presenters was Dr. Michael Repka, assistant professor in the Department of Pharmaceutics and research assistant professor in the Research Institute for Pharmaceutical Sciences. Repka's bioadhesive film platform technology has recently spawned a relationship with a Mississippi company, WraSer Pharmaceuticals. In a recent press article, the relationship was described as one designed to allow WraSer “to work with the university to ‘identify, develop, register and commercialize’ new pharmaceutical products.” This represents the latest in a series of successes for The University of Mississippi, and specifically the School of Pharmacy, related to technology transfer.
