Do you think that you can’t get patents for bioinformatics inventions? Think again!
Update: This event is now at capacity. Please note you will be added to a waiting list if you complete the registration form.
It’s a common misconception that inventions relating to bioinformatics cannot be patented. However, in reality the number of patents granted for these inventions is increasing year-on-year.
Many academics recognise the potential value in seeking protection for their ideas, but with disinformation and confusion around patenting in this space, how do you know if your invention could be granted a patent?
Join us to hear from patent examiners from the European Patent Office who are responsible for examining and granting patents in the bioinformatics and medical informatics fields.
They will explain what is, and what isn't, patentable, using real-life examples and sharing their top tips for success!
Find out for yourself what you could do with your ideas - your future self might be very grateful!
If you work in the field of bioinformatics and want to keep up to date with the latest developments, read our recent blog 'Patentable subject matter in bioinformatics'.
