Dr. Michael Baker of Salubrix IP Services will discuss the practical aspects of creating and commercializing intellectual property (IP) at a Joint School of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology seminar this Friday, April 26. The 11 a.m. seminar is free and open to the public.

The seminar will cover the requirements for obtaining a patent and the essential relationship between patents and markets. Dr. Baker will focus particularly on commercializing patents in a university environment and the essential relationship between university researchers and senior technology developers in the private sector.  He will encourage the audience to tap into their “inner genius” to generate IP.

Dr. Baker is an electrical engineer and patent lawyer with over 18 years of corporate experience. He earned a Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology and received his Juris Doctorate from Lewis & Clark College of Law in Portland, OR.

Salubrix provides IP training services specifically designed for engineers, scientists and technology managers (“technology developers”). They specialize in IP law and policy and train technology developers on aspects of the law that directly impact their job function.
