Medventions Lecture "An Introduction to Patents for the Medical Device Researcher"

  • Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre (map)

This lecture and workshop will provide an introduction to various concepts in patenting from the perspective of a researcher, comparing and contrasting differences between filing a patent application and submitting a journal paper. The lecture will also focus on different types of patent searches, including patentability searches, state of the art searches, and freedom to operate searches. Practical search techniques will be described, followed by an in-class exercise in which participants will practice their search skills with an example of a patentability search.
