The system was developed with NIH grant funds and through our institution; what should we provide to an IP lawyer and/or a patent lawyer?
Please specify: the IP attorney gets which documents, and the Patent attorney gets what?
That is clear. One more question: If I leave the institution I am at, would the IP and patent go with me, or stay with the institution?
Thank you; this was helpful.
