USPTO - FDA Collaboration Initiatives

USPTO-FDA collaboration initiatives

The USPTO is focused on ensuring our patent system incentivizes and protects the investments essential for bringing life-saving and life-altering drugs and biologics to market. At the same time, the USPTO is focused on ensuring our system, as a whole, is not used to improperly delay getting more affordable generic drugs and biosimilars into the hands of Americans who need them.

USPTO-FDA Collaboration Initiatives

The USPTO’s initiatives aim to enhance collaboration with other agencies; ensure that the USPTO issues robust and reliable patents; improve the process for post-grant challenges of issued patents; and improve public participation in the patent system.
