ACS Webinar - Avoiding IP Own Goals in Drug Discovery: Best Practices for Obtaining (and Keeping) Your IP

July 31, 2024 | 2:00 PM - 3:15 PM ET


In today's complicated Intellectual Property (IP) landscape there are many challenges that pharmaceutical innovators often face in obtaining, and later maintaining, IP protection on their work. If you want to ensure your innovative research is protected and become a successful scientist working in drug discovery, it's nearly impossible to do so these days without developing at least basic IP acumen.

Join former chemists and current IP attorneys and partners, Eric Romeo and Olivia Uitto, as they draw on their real-world experience advising clients in the pharmaceutical space to highlight IP-related concepts and concerns that they wish they knew when they were still working on the bench. During this free webinar you will learn a scientist-focused overview of common IP-related pitfalls (or “own goals”) that can arise during drug discovery as well as practical advice and strategies for how innovators can avoid them. Don’t miss your opportunity to discover more about the role of patents and other forms of IP in drug discovery, publication strategy, relationships with third parties; and best practices for inventors.
