Overview

In a world increasingly becoming vulnerable to the worldwide outbreak of diseases, Bio-Med has become one of the most centric areas of technological advancement. As a result, we are witnessing a rapid surge in the number of patent applications for Bio-Med innovations, especially in medical technology, pharmaceuticals and biotechnology.

Previously, most of the major scientific breakthroughs from treatments and cures of diseases to genetic crop improvement had been obtained by integrating different bio components such as genetics, stem cell research, genetic engineering and gene editing. However, in the last few years, the trend has shifted towards grafting different fields of science onto these developments. From hereon, medical and bio innovations are expected to be converged with AI, robotics, mobile applications and big data management.

As such, Bio-Med companies face a new challenge of protecting their sophisticated and intricate products and technologies. Not only do they need experts with a solid understanding of biology and medicine, but they need a group of technical specialists with an extensive and all-encompassing knowledge of AI and software.
