Academic Interest in Patents
Filed under: Post-docs, Legal matters
Posted by: site admin @ 9:55 am

More and more chemists at universities
are filing inventions and working with
their university technology transfer offices.

A thoughtful article by B. Halford
(C&EN 5-25-09, p. 39) addresses
both the benefits (financial) and
responsibilities (awareness, recording
in notebooks and inventorship details)

of graduates and post-doctorals, in
addition to professors, in becoming
knowledgeable about patenting,
the patenting process and its significance
in the commercial world in light of the
1980 Bayh-Dole Act.

The article wisely points out that this
could be well worth the effort.
(in addition to listing patents on your List
of Publications, Patents and Presentations.)
