Protecting the Intellectual Property of the Skin Microbiome

Session Description: 

As in all emerging technical areas, one of the key elements for ultimately attracting financial interest and bringing a product to market is developing and protecting the intellectual property (patents, trademarks, trade secrets) surrounding innovation.  This talk will discuss the different approaches that can be taken to secure intellectual assets associated with research and products related to the skin microbiome.  In addition, specific challenges, including developments concerning patenting “naturally occurring products” and “natural processes” will be addressed.
