Brown Bag Seminar Focuses on Finding Intellectual Property Hidden in Academic Research

Duquesne University and the Pittsburgh Central Keystone Innovation Zone (PCKIZ) are co-sponsoring Finding Intellectual Property Hidden in Academic Research, a series of sessions designed to address determining which research discoveries may have commercial value and need to be protected.

The first session will examine the challenges associated with identifying commercially valuable technologies within academic research, including looking at ways to identify great ideas and the questions that need to be addressed such as novelty, market, potential customers and possible technology distribution.

Dr. Alan W. Seadler, associate academic vice president for research and the Edward V. Fritzky Chair in Biotechnology Leadership at Duquesne University, will lead the sessions.

The sessions are free and open to the public. Soft drinks, coffee and cookies will be provided. Attendees are welcome to bring a lunch. To register, e-mail volk@duq.edu or call 412.396.6326.

When: Wednesday, Oct. 1, from noon to 1 p.m.

Where: Room 608, Duquesne Union, Duquesne University, 600 Forbes Ave.
