Host: Scott D. Locke, Esq., Partner & Chair of the Intellectual Property Department, Dorf & Nelson

Mr. Locke counsels clients on the procurement, enforcement and licensing of patents, trademarks, copyrights, and trade secrets. He provides solo inventors, start-up businesses, and well-established companies across diverse industries with strategies and tools for maximizing the return on their investment in their ingenuity, creativity, and goodwill. His clients include innovators in the fields of pharmaceuticals, delivery systems, diagnostics, siRNA technologies, Cas9 related technologies, gene therapies, and medical devices.

This session will address the many issues related to intellectual property protection and management that are of critical importance to the Life Sciences community. Most researchers are now or at some point in their careers will become inventors, but in order to become or to be positioned to work with entrepreneurs they must be aware of the steps that they need to follow to protect their inventions. If gone about the wrong way, researchers will be unable to realize the value of the inventions into which they poured their energy, and unable to attract the funding that they need to bring their invention to market. We will provide guidance on protecting your inventions and using the intellectual property regime to turn the inventions into recognized assets.
