L.A.’s three prominent research universities send a range of products into the real world.
CALTECH, USC and UCLA researchers ponder big questions. How would you improve cancer treatment? Can solar power be produced more efficiently? Why can’t X-rays be taken with smaller devices? And sometimes they come up with the answers.

This special section details recent tech transfer projects, such as John Dabiri’s wind turbines, described below.
