Intellectual Property and the Importance of Proper Planning and Design of Experiments

Dr. Madan Bhasin, Adjunct Professor

Cain Department of Chemical Engineering

Participate in an interactive presentation on intellectual property and the importance of proper planning and design of experiments leading to strong patent protection. Dr. Madan Bhasin will present the actual plans, design, and mathematical developments that were later the focus of successful litigation for Union Carbide against a known infringer.


Bhasin holds a PhD in Physical Chemistry from the University of Notre Dame and serves as chief scientific advisor to MATRIC, or Mid-Atlantic Technology, Research & Innovation Center. He has more than 45 years of experience in the chemical industry, primarily with Union Carbide and Dow Chemical, and his primary area of expertise is heterogeneous catalysis with strong emphasis on surface science and the analytical techniques involved in catalyst characterization. He was elected to the National Academy of Engineering in 2006. He was elected as a Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors (NAI) this year.
