Royalties from Federal Grants that yield Patents

Do Federal Grants lead to patents? Yes! Sometimes very profitable patents that generate huge amounts of royalties to the institution that received the grant. Do any of the royalties go back to the granting agency? NO. I recommend at least some percentage of any royalties derived from a Federal grant be returned to the granting agency to help support costs.
