Description

Event Description:

This seminar/workshop will explain the mechanics of the patent application examination process. The presenter has experienced the process both as a current USPTO patent examiner and also as a patent attorney previously representing clients before the USPTO. We will expand upon some of the topics covered in our previous seminars on technology transfer and extend the conversation to how academic institutions can improve their patent application submissions. Finally, we will discuss the situations under which the investigator would have an interview with the USPTO and how best to prepare for such an interview.

There will be light food and refreshments offered to attendees during intermission.
