Dr Chong-Yee Khoo attended the CIPA Life Sciences Conference virtually this year.

Traditionally the conference is a favoured opportunity for patent and IP professionals active in the pharma, medical technology and biotechnology sectors to connect, discuss and be educated in a friendly environment and to get CPD points.

Over the course of the week commencing the 16th November 2020, the conference provided a series of webinars which covered:

  • updates on latest case law in Europe, including implications of Covid-19 on prosecution and oral proceedings
  • updates from the US, including USPTO speaker Director Iancu, Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property and Director of the United States Patent and Trademark Office
  • the hot topics in the Life Sciences IP space
  • insights into inventorship considerations
  • the recent Supreme Court decision on insufficiency
