The weekly seminar series organized by CNT and the Molecular Engineering and Sciences Institute provides a forum for bringing national and international leaders in nanoscale science and technology to campus, and for graduate students enrolled in our Dual Ph.D. program in Nanotechnology to present their research.
All seminars are held on Tuesdays from 2:30 to 3:20 PM in Johnson Hall Room 102 (North end of building and across from MolE).

Basic Introduction to Intellectual Property and the University of Washington’s role in Developing and Commercializing Intellectual Property
Todd E. North, University of Washington - C4C
Intellectual Property (IP) rights, such as those obtained through Patents, Trademarks, Copyrights, and Trade Secrets, play a key role in the ability of the University of Washington (UW) to develop and commercialize UW’s early stage research and technology. The UW Center for Commercialization (C4C) strives to assist the UW and UW Researchers with 1) protecting their technology through IP rights; 2) helping UW researchers license their technology; and 3) providing funding resources to help commercialize UW research. With recent changes to the laws that govern IP rights, such as the new America Invents Act, an understanding of the basic rules of IP law is important for protecting and commercializing the UW’s research and technology.
