The area of Biotechnology and Life Sciences, devoted to studies of the living world, covers a broad range of disciplines from Anatomy to Zoology, including biology, botany, optometry, human health and disease, biophysics, sociobiology, biotechnology, biopharmaceuticals, tissue engineering, biostatistics and bioinformatics. Over recent decades, recombinant DNA technology has allowed scientists to make enormous advances in understanding fundamental biological processes by analysing and manipulating genes and proteins. This is an extremely dynamic and exciting field of modern science, connecting diverse areas, which is gaining more and more attention in Russia, Ukraine, Kazakhstan and other ex-USSR countries.

Our clients’ areas of interest range from bioinformatics to virology. Clients include research companies in small molecule drug discovery and design; medicinal chemistry; central nervous system pharmacology; immunology; neurobiology; cancer biology therapeutics; imaging and other diagnostics; transgenic animals and other disease models; modified release and other drug delivery technologies; and gene therapy.

We believe that only constant, on-going education and professional development will allow our specialists to provide such clients with the highly professional advice they need to protect these types of innovations, which deal with frontier experimental techniques. PATENTICA's Attorneys and Experts in the Life Sciences team have scientific backgrounds in the areas of Biotechnology, Molecular Biology and Cell Chemistry, and Bioengineering (up to PhD level - see personal profiles of our Patent Attorneys and Experts), and have gained significant experience working in the field. They are thus able to understand the very essence of our clients' innovative technologies, whether they relate to biochemistry, genetics or cell biology. In particular, they have experience in drafting and prosecuting Russian and Eurasian patent applications relating to pharmaceuticals, including antiviral and immunomodulating compounds, adsorbent and polymer technology, nanotechnology, bioecology and drug delivery.

A particular strength of our team is its ability to work on cross-disciplinary inventions, particularly in cooperation with colleagues in the Chemistry & Pharmaceuticals, Electronics, Electrical Engineering & Telecommunications, and Mechanics & Medical Technology groups. Drafting patent applications in the field of Biotechnology and Life Sciences requires a special combination of legal and technical skills which we believe our attorneys can confidently demonstrate, as a result of experience gained by working with our broad portfolio of clients.
