The California Healthcare Institute (CHI) and D Young & Co will be hosting two seminars on Patenting Biotech Inventions on November 19, 2013 in San Diego, CA and on November 20, 2013 in San Francisco, CA.

differences between patenting biotech and medical device inventions in the
US and Europe.
• Traps to avoid, including approaches to stem cells, antibodies, personalised medicine and more.
• Requirements for experimental data in European patent applications.
• Protecting diagnostic inventions in Europe.
• The impact of one of the biggest changes to the patent landscape Europe has seen since 1978: the unitary patent and filing strategies.
Speakers will include Fredrik Aslund, Examination Director, European Patent Office, and Aylsa Williams, Catherine Mallalieu, Robert Dempster, and Simon O'Brien of D Young & Co.
