The PTAB Comes to Indianapolis!

The PTAB Comes to Indianapolis!

Please join your fellow Indy ChIPsters in welcoming Vice Chief Judge Janet Gongola of the Patent Trial and Appeal Board to our city. Judge Gongola will share her experiences, thoughts on the PTAB, and patent musings with us in an informal Q&A format, so bring your questions and don’t be shy!

Judge Gongola began her career at Lilly, where she was a research chemist, patent agent, and patent attorney. Judge Gongola is a summa cum laude graduate of Indiana University School of Law.

Judge Gongola was appointed to the PTAB in October 2016. Before joining the Board, Judge Gongola was the Senior Advisor to the Under Secretary and Director of the USPTO where she advised on all matters of law and policy.

Lunch will be provided and attendance is free to members. Please register as soon as possible because space will fill quickly. Please bring a Photo ID for admittance into the building.
