Marc Oettinger

Licensing Manager

Marc Oettinger joined the UVA Licensing & Ventures Group in June 2017 as a Licensing Manager specializing in physical and engineering sciences. Working predominantly with technologies related to the engineering and applied science applications, including materials, biomedical, mechanical, and computer/software industries, Marc is responsible for evaluating the patentability and marketability of specific assets created from UVA research.

A liaison to the UVA School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, Marc works to help educate, protect, manage, market and monetize intellectual property arising from the UVA research portfolio.

Prior to joining LVG, Marc served as a licensing officer at the University of California, Berkeley. He worked to leverage and utilize intellectual property at Hewlett-Packard, Visa Inc., Los Alamos National Laboratory, Southeastern Universities Research Association, and Jefferson Lab.

As one of the newest members of the licensing team, Marc brings a fresh perspective to LVG from his former experience in university technology transfer on the west coast. New to the Charlottesville area, Marc and his family are eager to explore the area and familiarize themselves with the community.
