Professor Marino di Marzo is Finalist for Invention of the Year

Mechanical Engineering Professor and Director of Graduate Studies Marino di Marzo was a finalist for the 14th Annual Invention of the Year sponsored by the University of Maryland's Office of Technology Commercialization. His invention, co-developed by Paolo Ruffino, "Wet Gas Temperature Measurement Probe," was a finalist in the physical science category.

The Office of Technology Commercialization (OTC) at the University of Maryland was established in 1986 to facilitate the transfer of information, life and physical science inventions developed at the University to business and industry. In the past 14 years, OTC has recorded more than 1,000 technologies, secured more than 150 patents and executed more than 480 license agreements, generating more than $17 million in technology transfer income. In addition, 22 high-tech start-up companies have been formed based on technologies developed at the University.
