BIO’s Livestock Biotech Summit will be held September 16-18, 2014, at the Sioux Falls Convention Center in Sioux Falls, SD.

“Intellectual Property is critical to protecting innovation and attracting investment for animal biotechnology. Understanding how to properly protect innovation is highly important to the future success of this industry,” said Cathy Enright, Executive Vice President, Food and Agriculture at BIO. “We are pleased that Polsinelli PC is able to provide attendees at this year’s Livestock Biotech Summit a unique view into the important role that patents play in the animal biotechnology industry.”
