Award winning client announced

14th Jun 2016

Our client, Dr Helen Lee from Diagnostics for the Real World has recently won the European Inventor Award 2016 in the Popular Prize category which is organised by the European Patent Office (EPO).

Cambridge university researcher Dr Lee (and team) worked on an invention which is an instant blood diagnostic kit developed for resource-poor regions of the globe. Already used to test more than 40,000 people, the robust and cost effective kit is designed to carry out on-the-spot detection of infectious diseases such as HIV, hepatitis B and chlamydia.

Dr Lee received more than 36,300 votes which is 64% of the total votes cast online by the public in the five weeks leading up to the award ceremony. According to the EPO, this is by far the highest number of public votes ever received by any European Inventor Award finalist since the launch of the Popular Prize category in 2013.

Neil Thornton of Reddie & Grose, who has worked closely with Dr Lee to protect the IP in this invention, said:

“We’re very pleased with this result for Helen and her team and the award is very well deserved.”
