Retirement Reception Honoring TLA VP David Allen

Presidential Events
March 13, 2018

After nearly six years at the helm of Tech Launch Arizona, Vice President David Allen is retiring this coming April. Dr. Allen came to the UA after a more-than-30-year career in technology-related research, instruction and practice. Before his arrival in Arizona, he served as Associate Vice President for Technology Transfer at the University of Colorado, with similar positions at The Ohio State University and Ohio University, and as a faculty member at Penn State University. Dr. Allen's depth of experience and expertise had great impact at Tech Launch Arizona, and TLA has made important advances for the future of the UA and Arizona. In the 2016-2017 academic year, TLA outperformed its previous high marks, with 261 invention disclosures, 334 U.S. patents filed, 105 total executed licenses and options and 15 startups formed.

A retirement celebration will be held for David Allen on Wednesday, April 11th, from 4:00 – 5:30 p.m. at Old Main, Silver and Sage Room (level 2). Light refreshments and hors d'oeuvres will be served and a short presentation will begin at 4:30 p.m.

Please come congratulate Dr. Allen and thank him for his many years of loyal and dedicated service to the University of Arizona community.
