The presentation will be part of a session titled “Patent Subject Matter Eligibility in the Life Sciences Space,” in which patent experts will share information relevant to chemistry professionals.

Dunston focuses her practice on patent procurement, opinions, enforcement (both in district courts and before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board), and portfolio strategy. Her clients range from individual inventors to large, multi-national companies. Dunston’s matters are primarily in the life science space (small molecules, large molecules, and medical devices), but she has handled projects on subject matter ranging from precipitated silica to vaccines to radiotherapy devices.

Dr. Stephany G. Small focuses her practice on acquiring and preserving intellectual property rights in all areas of life science, including biologics, pharmaceuticals, treatment/diagnostic methods, novel plant varieties, and transgenic plants. Her practice involves procurement of patents through prosecution before the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office and foreign jurisdictions and also involves litigation matters including proceedings before the Patent Trial and Appeal Board.

The American Chemical Society regularly holds conferences where chemistry professionals meet to share ideas and advance scientific and technical knowledge. These meetings provide opportunities to share information about current developments and network with others in the chemistry field.
