Now in its seventh year, the PIUG Biotechnology Meeting focuses on best practices for patent information professionals who specialize in biotechnology search and analysis. This year’s theme is, "Meeting Challenges in Biotechnology Patent Searching." As biologics account for an increasing share of product approvals and pipelines, biotechnology searchers face new challenges in efficient delivery of strategic information to facilitate informed decision making and foster innovation of new biologic products.

We look forward to seeing you at the meeting!
