"The Role of Patents in Repurposing and Rescuing of Old Drugs," Speaker, STC 2017 Spring Seminar Series, April 2017.
This presentation defines the role that patents play in protecting drug inventions, where the research involves the discovery of an old drug for a new use. It is a practical discussion of the different patent strategies available to university faculty for the protection of inventions having important therapeutic benefit, but where composition patent protection is unavailable. This protection is necessary to attract the interest of investors and drug companies allowing for the efficient translation of basic research from the laboratory to the clinic.

While we are pleased to have you contact us by telephone, surface mail, electronic mail, or by facsimile transmission, contacting Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton LLP or any of its attorneys does not create an attorney-client relationship. The formation of an attorney-client relationship requires consideration of multiple factors, including possible conflicts of interest. An attorney-client relationship is formed only when both you and the Firm have agreed to proceed with a defined engagement.
