Patent attorney engages with biotech researchers on technology transfer at major European conference

A leading UK-based Chartered Patent Attorney has engaged with some of the top biotech researchers from across Central Europe at a major international conference.

Dr Adrian Bradley, a Partner at Cleveland Scott York, which has offices in the City of London, St Albans, Reading and Brussels, is attending the 3rd Annual BIOSPOT Conference at the Dox Gallery in Prague on Thursday 1 March 2018.

The conference brings together leading biotech researchers with technology transfer professionals to exchange ideas and spread awareness of new discoveries, ideas and inventions.

Technology transfer involves protecting, promoting, funding and partnering innovations with the aim of bringing them to market in commercial applications.

As a Chartered Patent Attorney, Dr Bradley advises on the protection of inventions from unauthorised copying, which is necessary for effective commercialisation and for attracting new revenue streams.

Dr Bradley said: “Biotech research is something that matters to all of us, given its particular importance to medical breakthroughs.

“However, in order to see the latest biotech research translate into improved outcomes for patients, it is important for that technology to make its way out of the confines of the lab and into commercial applications.

“I was encouraged by how engaged the researchers at the conference were with the task of attracting investment and ultimately delivering improvements to people’s health.”

Dr Bradley regularly assists researchers and universities on technology transfer matters, recently attending the Association of University Technology Managers (AUTM) in Phoenix, Arizona and sitting on the Business Advisory Board to the Czech Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry.
