Dr. Anthony Sabatelli and Nicholas Vincent of Dilworth IP will be offering a FREE webinar on Wednesday, February 22nd at 2:00 PM (EST). This installment in the Dilworth IP Webinar Series is entitled Patenting the Microbiome: Trends, Challenges, and Insights, and will offer an overview of the microbiome; specifically, the IP challenges that it presents, and recommendations for a robust path forward. Research in the microbiome seeks to characterize the microorganism that live in and on different environments, including the human body. Recent developments in this area are revolutionizing the life sciences, because they have the potential to radically improve treatments for dozens of common ailments and greatly improve the quality of life for many who suffer from these conditions. Despite the promise and excitement of this important research area, the IP aspects are challenging. For example, the threshold question of patent subject matter eligibility under 35 USC 101 is still a confusing and uncertain issue in this area.
This webinar is a must attend for patent practitioners, inventors, business leaders, research directors, and others in the life sciences industry seeking perspective and clarity on the IP challenges around the microbiome.
