navel. But Cleveland Clinic’s expertise and innovations stretch far beyond the surgery suite.

O’Neill Testifies in Front of Senate Judiciary Committee

In early June in Washington, D.C., Cleveland Clinic Innovations (CCI) Executive Director Pete O’Neill testified in front of a Senate Judiciary Committee on the state of patent eligibility in America. One of 45 witnesses across three days of testimony, O’Neill spoke to Cleveland Clinic’s perspective on the importance of having confidence that an issued patent that follows guidance of the USPTO will not be invalidated based on court case-law.  His testimony addressed Cleveland Clinic’s experience with patenting the diagnostic MPO test, which led to the creation of Cleveland HeartLab. Specifically, he spoke about cases before federal district courts whereby the court rulings resulted in losing the protection of the MPO patents.
