Stem cells are a rapidly developing technology area. The pace of scientific and clinical progress is accompanied by new patents, which can secure technology for innovators, and require careful observation by others to avoid infringement.
After discussions with Christian Walker, a colleague and entrepreneur in the stem cell space, I have launched StemCellPatentWatch to help track new IP developments in the stem cell space.
StemCellPatentWatch delivers on a simple premise: It scans new patent grants for those covering stem cell technologies. Complete details on inventorship, patent ownership, and claims are included. You can also use the search form to find patents of interest, and there is a weekly newsletter featuring the patent updates.
I look forward to your feedback on this new site, and for suggestions for further improvement.
