IP 101: The Basics for Biotech and Life Science Startups

Protection of intellectual property is one of the fundamentals of starting a biotech, pharma or life science company. Because it’s often a long, expensive process to develop a new drug or device, it’s essential for an entrepreneur to obtain the correct patents while she is advancing the science toward a proof of concept so that the value of the discovery will be preserved.

This informative, interactive program will review the basics of intellectual property law, with a special emphasis on university spinouts. Come prepared with questions about why and how to patent an invention; how to license technology for commercialization; and what steps to take now to ensure the best outcomes in business and scientific partnerships in the US and abroad.

The program is free and open to the public, although space is limited.
