UM Regents OK 11 Conflict-of-Interest Items

At its April 18, 2012 meeting, the University of Michigan board of regents authorized 11 items that required disclosure under the state’s Conflict of Interest statute. The law requires that regents vote on potential conflict-of-interest disclosures related to university staff, faculty or students.

The items often involve technology licensing agreements or leases. This month, the items related to the following businesses: Ambiq Micro Inc.; Milcom Inc.; QE Tools; SwirlTech; RBL Group; Arbor Research Collaborative for Health; Arbor Ultrasound Technologies; ImBio; JV BioLabs; PicoCal Inc.; and SB10 Inc.

This brief was filed from the Michigan Union’s Rogel ballroom, where the board held its April meeting.
