NDSU Research Foundation files provisional US patent based on intellectual property by Dr. Ganapathy Mahalingam

The NDSU Research Foundation has filed a provisional US patent based on intellectual property that Dr. Ganapathy Mahalingam developed with student researcher Claire Olson. The methodology required for filing the utility patent was developed through an Undergraduate Biomedical Research Award this past summer from the Office of Research and Creative Activity at NDSU. Dr. Mahalingam and Claire Olson worked this past summer on the project titled, Calibrating the Built Environment Using Biosensing Equipment. The intellectual property was created as a methodology to calibrate buildings for their affordance of physical activity and wellness. This is the first ever patent filed by the NDSU Research Foundation based on the research of a faculty member of the Architecture program at NDSU.
