Join us on Thursday, March 12th at the New Castle County Chamber of Commerce as we welcome guest speakers Janet Reed, Ph.D., Partner at Potter Anderson & Corroon, LP and Andrew Cottone, Ph.D., Founder and President of Adesis, Inc..

Dr. Janet E. Reed is the head of the Potter Anderson & Corroon’s intellectual property transactional and counseling practice. Though she counsels in all aspects of intellectual property, Janet focuses her practice on patents related to biotechnological inventions in food, medicine, and agriculture. Her clients span a variety of industries and include large and small pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, agricultural and food companies, and academic institutions. Janet has extensive experience in domestic and foreign patent prosecution, patent portfolio management and strategic planning, evaluation of new technology, drafting of license and other commercialization agreements, conducting and responding to due diligence inquiries, and preparation of opinions on patentability, infringement, and freedom to operate. She looks forward to discussing best practices and tips for writing successful non-disclosure and confidentiality agreements with March BioBreakfast attendees.

Andrew Cottone, Ph.D. is the Founder and President of Adesis, a position he has held since 2016 when the Company became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Universal Display Corporation. Andrew joined CB Research and Development (the predecessor of Adesis) in 2001 and co-founded Adesis in 2005. Trained as an organometallic and process chemist, Andrew’s breadth and depth of experience encompasses 5 years of industrial experience as a process chemist, ten years as a technical manager, twelve years as an entrepreneur/business founder, and fifteen years as a business executive. Join us as Andrew provides insight into “The Adesis Story” leading attendees on a journey through the past, present, and future of Adesis.
