Please join us at the AIPLA Mid-Winter Institute for our joint presentation with the Biotechnology Committee on "Food for Thought—Hot Topics in Food & Drug and Biotech."

The program will consist of four "bite-sized" presentations moderated by Malaika Tyson.  First up is a presentation by Jeffrey Totten on 3D printing of biomedical products – tissues, organs and medical devices.  This will provide an overview of these exciting new technologies and some of their IP implications.  Next up is an overview of biosimilars litigation by Irena Royzman, based on the past two years of cases in this evolving and important area.  This is followed by a presentation by Daphne Lainson on claim drafting for pharmaceutical patents in Canada and the United States, with a view towards maximizing the benefits of the Hatch-Waxman  Act (United States) and the similar Patented Medicines Regulations (Canada).  These laws add another dimension to patent drafting; the presentation will provide an overview of some of the key issues that arise.  The program will conclude with a presentation by Matthew A. Pearson on IPR stays in the USPTO during Hatch-Waxman litigation.  This topic will be of interest to those involved in both patent prosecution and litigation, as it touches on the complicated interplay between these aspects.
