The Biotech Patenting and Tech Transfer track has a lot to offer 2011 BIO International Convention Attendees. High level speakers include White House Intellectual Property Enforcement Coordinator Victoria Espinel, European Patent Office Director of Biotechnology Sjoerd Hoekstra, retired Chief Judge of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit Paul Michel, and former Solicitors General Seth Waxman and Paul Clement to name a few.
I am particularly excited about the breadth of the session content. Issues range from biosimilars, patentability of DNA, and recent Supreme Court decisions. Those representing small biotechs and University Tech Transfer offices can enjoy sessions focused on collaborative R&D, technology transfer, and licensing. Larger biotechs can learn about fighting counterfeiting abroad with the U.S. government and patenting issues in Europe and India.
