Comments:
SIU School of Medicine intends to exercise its option to renew this contract during the period July 1, 2005 through June 30, 2006. It is crucial that the continuity of services on each invention be maintained to insure successful prosecution of patent applications. It routinely takes from 24 to 60 months or more for a patent to be fully prosecuted before the Patent and Trademark Office and to prosecute foreign patents through the Patent Corporation Treaty (PCT). If there are any difficulties with any part of the patent application continuation a continuation patent may need to be filed with which extends the period of prosecution even further. There is a 4% increase in fees this year that was included in the original proposal.
The University award process may be delayed up to thirty days as this award goes through a state approval process.
