Patent Examiner Job (Biomedical Engineering) – USPTO

Comments Off on Patent Examiner Job (Biomedical Engineering) – USPTO

A patent examiner (PE) reviews applications to determine whether patents can be granted for inventions. Patents give inventors the right to exclude others from making or selling their inventions for a limited time. As a U.S. patent examiner, you will handle these basic patent examining functions:

  • Search prior art to ensure that an invention is new and unique. Prior art is information that has been disclosed to the public about an invention before a given date – including any related patents, published articles and public demonstrations.
  • Review patent applications to ensure conformity to formal requirements.
  • Write legal office actions on patentability and respond to patent applicants.

GS-7: Perform basic patent examining functions with extensive instructions from the supervisor. Training will develop the ability to apply technical concepts to the patent examining process. Assignments combine performance of productive work with supervised on-the-job training.

Open & closing dates: 09/11/2017 to 10/23/2017

Location: Alexandria, VA

LTU / UDM Collaboration Senior Projects (2017)

Comments Off on LTU / UDM Collaboration Senior Projects (2017)

Every year BME students from LTU and Mechanical Engineering and Nursing students from University of Detroit Mercy (UDM) collaborate on senior projects where they develop working prototypes of assistive care devices for patients with physical disabilities. The ‘clients’ are from the VA Hospital, Detroit and this collaboration is a great example of how students can bring different skills together to bring innovative ideas to life. The feedback from the clients is especially gratifying. This year the VA decided to have an event where these products were unveiled to the client and high level administrators from both universities and the hospital were in attendance.

The students gave short presentations and then demonstrated their product to the audience which included their clients. In addition members of various local media outlets were present to record the event and it got good press coverage in all major networks. Some of these are below:

These projects take a lot of coordination and communication but the appreciation from the veterans is extremely gratifying and really highlights the motivation for BME students to make direct impact on people’s lives.
