Emily RosenthalDr. Emily Rosenthal-Kim joined The Ohio State Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship in June of 2017 from the Technology Entrepreneurship and Commercialization Institute in the Fisher College of Business. Striving to maximize the social and economic impact of innovative university technologies, Emily manages the Center’s technology-focused market research services and provides clients with market intelligence and commercialization strategy insight. She also runs two educational programs directed towards STEMM graduate students, post-doctoral researchers and principle investigators interested in non-academic career paths.

Even before pivoting to the business side of technology translation, Emily approached scientific research from a commercialization perspective.  Her academic research focused on the invention and development of translatable, industry-relevant polymers, biomaterials and chemical processes. She is named on three patents, and one of her polymers has undergone further development by a major biomedical device manufacturer.

After earning a Ph.D. in Polymer Science from the University of Akron in 2013, Emily held simultaneous research appointments with the Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at The Ohio State University (OSU) and the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering at The University of Akron.

Emily holds B.S. in Chemistry from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo (2008) and an A.A.S in Rubber Technology from Ferris State University in Michigan. She has been actively involved in the Rubber Division of the American Chemical Society since 2003.
