Now in its sixteenth year, the PIUG Biotechnology Conference focuses on best practices for patent information professionals who specialize in biotechnology search and analysis. Within a changing business environment, patent searchers continue to provide value to companies and clients by maintaining contemporary knowledge of resources, technologies and industry trends.

Due to issues with COVID-19 and its variants, this year the conference will be held virtually March 1 - 2, 2022 and all presentations and workshops are being recorded.  These recordings of both presentations and workshops will be available through the Meeting App as with previous virtual conferences.
