IP Assessment

Discovery - Chemistry


Icagen utilizes patent professionals with pharmaceutical expertise to fully assess the intellectual property (IP) landscape around active molecular leads and fully developed chemical series with an explicit differentiated strategy for asset protection. Additionally, we can evaluate competitors’ IP positions for opportunities to incorporate public information on competitor programs to create novel and defensible positions.

Our specific capabilities include:

  • IP landscape assessments to inform series optimization planning
  • Chemical optimization cycles elaborated to establish an IP “beach head”
  • Estate creation with the perspective of asset protection and expansion
  • Scaffold hopping, novel bioisosteres or other Shape-Feature mimicry
