Patent Law is a growing career opportunity for scientists to transition into after obtaining their PhD or after a postdoctoral fellowship and continue to learn the cutting-edge research being developed. As scientific research progresses, the need for scientific input is critical to developing patent applications and supporting the intellectual property needs of scientific organizations and individuals. For graduate or postdoctoral fellows interested in this line of work, a critical understanding of the scientific impact is needed to assess the intellectual merit to pursue a patent. In this webinar, you will learn how other researchers and scientists have transitioned into the patent law and intellectual property space.

Brought to you by the NY Academy of Sciences
