    "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.
