Bird & Bird hosted a Life Sciences Roadshow in Oxford entitled 'Protecting your IP and bringing it to market' on Wednesday 16 May 2012.
At this seminar, our expert speakers provided an overview of the key legal issues the life sciences industry needs to know about and discussed the hot intellectual property topics faced by companies in this sector. This seminar was invaluable for anyone involved with the life sciences industry - from start up to multi national and was an excellent opportunity to network with like-minded people.
