A Virus We Can Love

Something is going on here at the SIU campus in Carbondale.  Just this afternoon, two undergraduate students came to our tech transfer offices for help and information on how to file a patent for their inventions. This is great, is there a virus or something going around campus?  If so, I say: PASS IT ON.;)

It's perfect timing too, because as many of us know, the Saluki Idea Competition is underway, where SIU students/teams can win cash and grant money they could put towards further developing their invention and/or filing a patent, among other things.  We had a similar outbreak last year around this time if I recall, during last year's competition.  If you know someone with a great idea, please do your part in contributing to this HOT virus by sending them to Thanks and hope everyone has a great weekend!
