New York Intellectual Property Law Association (NYIPLA) Annual Meeting
April 21, 2016 – New York, NY – The New York Intellectual Property Law Association (NYIPLA) will hold its Annual Meeting on Tuesday, May 17, 2016 at the Princeton Club of New York to welcome the new Officers and Board Members.
NYIPLA is pleased to announce that this year’s Inventor of the Year recipient is Dr. Thaddeus Prusik. Dr. Prusik will be recognized for his numerous contributions to the development of low-cost, temperature history indicators for use with vaccines and other biologics, for which he has been awarded 27 U.S. patents as an inventor or co-inventor. That work is embodied in a product called the Vaccine Vial Monitor, which is used for vaccines in vials that are shipped across the world, especially to third-world countries. This invention is particularly important on a global basis because excessive heat or excessive cold can often undermine the effectiveness of vaccines. Dr. Prusik’s technology consists of a smart label that attaches to individual vaccine vials; the smart label changes color if exposed to too much heat or cold based on the cumulative level of temperature changes the vial experiences during shipping/storage. Use of the Vaccine Vial Monitor helps prevent the administration of potentially ineffective vaccines and can identify where in the vaccine delivery supply chain vaccines are being exposed to too much heat or cold.
NYIPLA will also recognize the Honorable William C. Conner Writing Competition first and second place winners and the Honorable Giles Rich Diversity Scholarship.
NYIPLA Annual Meeting guests will have the opportunity to discuss association activities, attend informative workshops, and network with federal judges, government officials, corporate counsels and other legal professionals.
