Charlottesville Bioscience Luncheon Series

VaBIO is working with the Virginia Piedmont Technology Council to set up a bi-monthly brown bag-style luncheon series dedicated to topics of interest to our bioscience entrepreneurs. The first event will be in November and it will address the hidden surprises lurking in the Bayh-Dole Act of 1980. It is the foundation of today's university tech transfer system and should be of significant interest to everyone who has licensed anything from an institution of higher education.

The main speaker will be MaryAnne Armstrong from Birch, Stewart, Kolasch and Birch, a Northern Virginia Patent law firm.

If anyone has any suggestions, let us know.

I would be happy to give one on Merck v Integra and the impact of the recent Supremes decision on research patents and tools. I have spoken on this topic for AUTM/LES and the DC Bar.
