The UCSF Entrepreneurship Center presents Michael Shuster, PhD, JD, a partner in Fenwick & West’s Intellectual Property Practice and Co-chair of the Life Sciences Group. Michael will address the IP issues that have been on your mind: How do I know when I should file IP? What can I say to the outside world about my invention? Is it OK to talk to investors about my technology? When should I make a disclosure to the University? How much protection can I get from a provisional patent? Do I need an IP attorney to help me or can I do this myself? Michael will be joined by Karin Immergluck, head of UCSF’s Technology Management group.
