Professor Ghosh serves as Director of the Technology Commercialization Law Center and as Crandall Melvin Professor of Law after nearly twenty years of law school teaching. He earned his JD from Stanford, with distinction; his PhD from Michigan; and his BA from Amherst College.

In his capacity of the Director of the Technology Commercialization Law Center, he works closely in developing a program geared to training law students and students across the University in the subjects of intellectual property, licensing, IP management, and commercialization of technology and on creating national and international webinars and programs providing education about intellectual property, technology commercialization, and business formation for entrepreneurs, inventors, and university researchers.

His research and teaching specializations are in the development and commercialization of technology as a means of promoting economic and social development. He has written extensively on pharmaceutical patents, parallel importation, antitrust law, commercialization and other uses of data, and the role of intellectual property policy in shaping these diverse areas.

He is a member of the California bar, the Federal Circuit Bar, and the US Supreme Court bar. He was elected to the American Law Institute in 2012 and is currently a member of the advisory board on the Restatement of Copyright

He also works with a component of the Technology Commercialization Law Center, the New York State Science and Technology Law Center (NYSSTLC), a state funded entity focused on intellectual property and commercialization issues as they affect start-ups, universities, and research centers solely in the State of New York.
