Intellectual Property Management 

CSIR-Indian Institute of Chemical Biology is engaged primarily in research on diseases and certain biological problems of global interest and is continuously developing its knowledge base through world-class scientific research and innovation. The Institute is conducting basic research related to human health care with an intention to translate basic knowledge into technologies for the benefit of mankind.

All innovations of the Institute after an assessment of the potential for commercialization are protected through the filing of patents or copyrights by its Intellectual Property Management (IPM) cell. The IPM cell of CSIR-IICB, in close co-ordination with the Unit For Research & Development of Information Products (URDIP) and Innovation Protection Unit (IPU) of CSIR, is engaged in protecting the technologies developed with an objective to put forward these technologies towards the benefit of mankind. With the help of a new Comprehensive Patent Database prepared by this cell, now brief information about a patent filed by CSIR-IICB, since 1990 is just a click away.

This cell continuously maintains liaison with Scientists of CSIR-IICB and IPU, CSIR to protect Intellectual Properties of CSIR-IICB/CSIR. The IPM Cell, CSIR-IICB provides all information, clarifications, explanations and reports to IPU, CSIR regarding new patent applications, granted patents and renewal or lapsing of existing patents in consultation with concerned inventors within corresponding time-limit. The IPM Cell always extends co-operation to the scientists, CSIR-IICB in writing and filing patent applications. This cell prepares, maintains and disseminates all information regarding patent application, status of the application, renewal etc. as, when and where it is required. IPM cell, CSIR-IICB provides all necessary inputs and sends information to IPU, CSIR regarding Parliamentary Questions; prepares year wise documents on total Patents of CSIR-IICB filed and granted;  prepares Commercial Working Report of CSIR-IICB Patents for IPU, CSIR; and sends Renewal / Lapse recommendations of CSIR-IICB patents annually to IPU, CSIR.

In case of technology transfer or business tie-ups the IPM Cell provides all the necessary information relating to patents. During last few years efforts have been taken to license out patents and the drug for benign prostatic hyperplasia has already been launched into Indian market.
