Moving Ideas Beyond The Lab

4:15 PM - 5:15 PM (PDT), Wednesday, June 15, 2022 ・ Session Room 6F

Although scientists work at the forefront of discovery, many do not have the knowledge or training on how to move academic discoveries and ideas into the marketplace. This knowledge gap slows the translation and application of scientific discoveries into commercialized products and treatments. Attendees will learn how intellectual property can be protected and the requirements for patentability, as well as how to navigate key conversations on ownership. The session continues by exploring the process by which a discovery moves through the innovation pipeline to regulatory approval and eventual market entry.
