Translate: Me – Intellectual Property for Medical Technologies

This half day workshop will provide an in depth look at intellectual property for medical technologies, its exploitation and how it can be protected.

In particular, the workshop will focus on the difficult issue of disclosure, using discussion, group work and relevant med-tech case studies to reinforce the learning from a practical point of view.

Our trainer will also provide a detailed overview of the patent process covering timescales, costs and a guide to help delegates conduct initial searches.

The workshop will be delivered by Clair Curran from Urquhart-Dykes & Lord, one of the UK’s leading firms of Chartered Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys. Clair is a European Patent Attorney who holds a PhD in biochemistry from the University of Sheffield, and a Masters degree in medical genetics/immunology. She began her training as a patent attorney following a period of post-doctoral research, which saw her being named as an inventor on several University patent applications. Clair has worked both in private practice and in corporate environments, including working in an international medical device company.

Clair’s practice primarily focuses on the drafting and prosecution of patent applications relating to orthopaedic implants and related instrumentation
