“Patenting Medical Technology”

Patents play a critical role in the development of medical technology. The patent system drives innovation, and for medical technologies in particular, companies, universities, and inventors rely on patents to protect their ideas, often long before their ideas are clinically or commercially proven. This seminar will explain how patents are utilized to protect medical technologies, including what sorts of inventions can and cannot be patented, the basics of the patent process, and what investors are looking for when conducting intellectual property due diligence.
