John D. Eisemann is the NWRC Technology Transfer Program Manager at the USDA APHIS Wildlife Services (WS), National Wildlife Research Center (NWRC) in Fort Collins, Colorado. As Program Manager, Mr. Eisemann is responsible for all WS technology transfer activities including the development of confidentiality and material transfer agreements, Cooperative Research and Development Agreements, and assists with the preparation of invention disclosures and patent applications on behalf of WS scientists and operational employees. Other technology transfer activities include providing training to WS employees on the importance of protecting intellectual property and mechanisms of providing that protection and identifying licensing partners for the transfer of WS intellectual property to outside entities. In addition, Mr. Eisemann supervises the NWRC Product Registration and Quality Assurance. These units are responsible for maintaining regulatory compliance of all Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) vertebrate pesticide and animal drug registrations projects, maintaining the NWRC Quality Assurance program in relation to research protocols and complying to Good Laboratory Practices for agency required studies. Other projects John has worked on include the development of contraceptive vaccines and chemicals, eradication of rodents on islands for conservation purposes, the development of disease vaccines to manage zoonotic diseases in wildlife populations, and the registration of toxicants and repellents to meet Wildlife Services diverse operation needs. John works closely with Wildlife Services Operations, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) and the USDA Center for Veterinary Biologics to achieve these tasks. Previously, John worked with the U.S. EPA conducting ecological risk assessment of agricultural pesticides, and the US Fish and Wildlife Service developing biomarkers in wildlife for exposure to environmental contaminants.
