Intellectual property and why researchers should care about it

Leah Haman is an intellectual property associate at the Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation (WARF), the designated technology transfer office for the UW-Madison. The presentation will cover why it is important to protect intellectual property and WARF’s disclosure, patenting, and licensing processes. Key changes to patent law in light of the recently passed America Invents Act (AIA) will be touched on as well.

Identifying Adverse Drug Events in Observational Medical Data

Adverse drug events (ADEs) are a grave problem facing medical care. The Food
and Drug Administration places ADEs as the fourth-leading cause of mortality

billion in additional care each year. Researchers have responded by
developing computational versions of epidemiological study designs and
analyses, but machine learning techniques have not yet been widely applied.
