Patenting Biological Simulations in Drug Discovery


Our article ‘Patenting Biological Simulations in Drug Discovery’ has been published in Drug Discovery Today, by Elsevier. It examines the challenges faced when pursuing patent protection for biological simulations, particularly in view of the guidance provided by the European Patent Office in G1/19.

Article Highlights:

  • Biological simulations typically require a real world impact to be patentable.
  • Discoveries found using simulations may be patentable in their own right.
  • Substantial and convincing evidence may be required for simulations to be patentable.

Elsevier publish articles for scientific, technical, and medical research in the Physical Sciences and Engineering, Life Sciences, Health Sciences, Social Sciences and Humanities fields.
