Now in its eighth year, the PIUG Biotechnology Conference focuses on best practices for patent information professionals who specialize in biotechnology search and analysis. This year’s theme is, "Staying on the Cutting Edge of 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.
