Event details:  

Scientific research produces value in various forms, including an important but often intangible asset known as IP.  Increasingly, scientists working in the biotechnology arena are expected to operate with an informed understanding of IP management and patent law principles, as these have become core to the success of science/technology-based corporations in a knowledge-based economy. We welcome you to join us for this practical introduction to the tenets most important for you to understand, illustrating how discoveries, in the form of intellectual property, move through the legal market towards practical commercialization.
The program offers a unique opportunity to learn from accomplished scientific and legal professionals, sharing their expertise and experience operating at the point of intersection where science, business, and the law converge.  Through the session you will develop some useful ways to think about your own science within the context of IP management and patent law, and the presenters will lend perspective regarding the history, trends, and professional opportunities within this field.
