The 2011 Leahy-Smith America Invents Act fundamentally changed the process by which life sciences companies protect their inventions. U.S. patents are no longer awarded to the first to invent, but instead to the first to file. As a result, understanding the system and the standards for protecting intellectual property is as crucial today as understanding the science behind it.
In the last two centuries, American farmers have created the most efficient, productive, and sustainable food production system the world has ever seen. And in the coming decades, they will be tasked with providing food for the globe’s swelling population, which is projected to reach 9 billion people by 2050.
