Ami D. Gadhia
Portfolio Director – Technology Licensing
Johns Hopkins Technology Ventures
Ami D. Gadhia has served as a portfolio director of technology licensing at Johns Hopkins Technology Ventures since 2012.
Gadhia, who had a successful career in law before joining Johns Hopkins, is the only female portfolio director at the institution’s Technology Ventures Office.
“I have had the great honor and privilege to accomplish many firsts for JHU,” Gadhia said. “I have executed technology licensing deals with significant upfront fees for the university, obtained the first NIH manufacturing waivers on behalf of licenses, established the first successful click-license and coached the first Alliance Award recipient.”
Gadhia also is an avid supporter of Johns Hopkins’ Fast Forward and other initiatives, including its new Express License, which are designed to facilitate the launch of start-ups and more jobs for Marylanders.
