Description
Jenifer Slinskey manages the University of Pittsburgh's patent portfolio, a role that bridges the gap between academic research and industry commercialization. While this job does not require a law license, her STEM and patent law background improve the experience for the researchers she interfaces with and the outside patent counsel she manages. From submitting an invention disclosure form to collaborating with outside counsel, Jenifer outlines the rigorous process that transforms an inventor's academic idea into a commercial product. She provides an inside look at the collaborative effort required to protect and promote intellectual property at a leading research institution. Jenifer is a graduate of the University of Dayton School of Law. This episode is hosted by Katya Valasek.
