    Start Up Meet Up: Science and Engineering Edition

    6:00pm to 8:00pm

    Location: 

    Harvard Innovation Lab, Batten Hall, 125 Western Ave., Boston, MA

    The Harvard i-lab and Office of Technology Development is bringing together Harvard inventors, entrepreneurs, students, alumni and more to showcase high potential technologies being developed at Harvard. Our inventors will introduce their exciting technology and commercialization potential to our multi-disciplinary audience. This will be followed by a targeted networking session to enable the attendees to meet with our inventors, better understand each other’s skills and experiences. 

    We will have a direct "Longwood to i-lab" bus for this event (one trip). More info...

    "IP Strategies for Health Sciences Startups"

    6:00pm to 8:00pm

    Location: 

    Harvard Innovation Lab, Batten Hall, 125 Western Ave., Boston, MA

    Workshop of the Harvard Innovation Lab

    Biotech and medical device companies are heavily dependent on intellectual property rights, particularly those developing diagnostic, therapeutic or invasive products.  The complexity of the technology and rapidly evolving legal landscape make the availability, validity and enforceability of biotech patents highly uncertain. This session, led by Michael Twomey, a patent attorney and partner at WilmerHale, will explore some of the basic IP questions facing health sciences startups.
