Leveraging research: David Day retires as UF's tech transfer expert

Mark Basch | 6/28/2017

The University of Florida has reaped more than $250 million in royalties over the last four decades from the sale of Gatorade, famously created by UF professor Robert Cade. But UF originally rejected Cade's request to market the drink, and it took a legal battle after Cade sold the formula before UF reached an agreement to receive a share of those royalties.

"Gatorade was kind of the big one that almost got away," says David Day.

Day is retiring after 16 years as director of UF’s Office of Technology Licensing.
