Significance of the course:
Life sciences is going through a transition phase with abundant activities in Research and Development arena. The increased focus to R & D in academia and industries has led to Intellectual Property Rights at the centerstage. The increase in patenting activities by the academia is a welcome sign for bridging the industry academia gap.

We at Pharma Literati are proud to be associated with many institutes in these activities and are on a mission called “Pharma Innovation Yatra, 2017”. As a part of these activities, we are proud to announce another effort to fill the vacuum which was observed in many institutes during this yatra by launching this course on IPR.

The upgraded syllabus of pharmacy at many institutes, universities includes IPR as a core subject or a part of the subject. However, the thorough understanding of the subject is needed considering its global nature. We believe the course would be a stepping stone in this long journey of Innovation.
