Complimentary Workshops


8:00-9:00am Workshop Registration, Poster Set-up, and Coffee Break

9:00am-11:30am Technology Workshop
"Intellectual property and emerging technologies"

Presented by Stephen C. Lee , Associate Director, Biomedical Engineering Center, Ohio State University
Dennis A. Bennett , Director of Global IP Oncology, Biotechnology, Genomics, Pharmacia Corporation
The workshop will discuss the basics of intellectual property law in the US and Europe and examine key patents in BioMEMs and nanotechnology to date. It will also discuss key considerations in obtaining valuable intellectual property protection in the BioMEMs/nanotechnology arena, and will illustrate some of critical intellectual property pitfalls and classic mistakes encountered in other recently emergent fields including biotechnology, drug formulation and drug delivery.

11:30am-12:00pm Technology Workshop
