Precision medicine is hailed as a new revolution in health care and with good reason. The ability to gather information about an individual patient and to tailor a customised treatment accordingly marks a paradigm shift in the way that medicine is carried out.

We work with innovators in sequencing, genomics, proteomics, metabolomics and cell biology, as well as bioinformatics, biosensors and artificial intelligence, all of which play a part in this exciting field of precision medicine.

Our expertise and experience extend across the whole range of precision medicine and diagnostics technologies, from medical devices and wearables, through to biomarker discovery, liquid biopsy, and bioinformatics. Developments in this area are often multidisciplinary, drawing on advances in biology, engineering and computer science, and this is reflected in our team of expert attorneys, drawn from across specialisms, who collaborate to bring together knowledge and experience to develop effective IP strategies for new technologies in this rapidly developing space.

We’re experts in protecting precision medicine inventions at the European Patent Office. We’ve helped to shape the case law in this precision medicine, helping clients with new ideas in personalised medicine to protect their next generation therapeutics and we have an enviable track record in securing granted patents for seemingly difficult-to-patent inventions in bioinformatics.

We’re also well versed in the challenges of protecting precision medicine technologies around the world, helping clients to draft applications that can be used to protect inventions in different jurisdictions.  This takes account of the different approaches that different patent offices have to precision mention inventions, and also reflecting the clinical and commercial reality of these technologies which may involve multiple parties undertaking different parts of the process, sometimes in different countries.

Special Report

Patent Landscape in Bioinformatics and Digital Health: a data-driven analysis

The words "digital health", "data driven" and "AI" have been on everyone's lips and in many headlines in the healthcare and life sciences sectors over the last couple of years. We set out to collect data on the patent landscape in the fields of bioinformatics and digital health, to see whether the growth we and our clients see in the field is reflected in the data and whether insights can be gained that will assist in designing better, more informed IP strategies.
