Our annual ranking of faculty (Table 1) on the basis of patent grants research from IP Checkups and publications (via H index) shows many of the same faces as 2014. New entrants include investigators from the Mainz University Medical Center, Osaka University, Harvard College, California Institute of Technology, University of Southern California, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, the Sloan Kettering Institute and the University of Pennsylvania. Table 2 lists the most-cited patents overall for 2011–2015. In Figure 1, peptide/protein therapy has surpassed genotyping/sequencing as the category with the most-cited patents.
