Phoenix Biotechnology has entered the Patents For Humanity awards competition sponsored by the United States Patent & Trademark Office.

The program recognizes innovators who use game-changing technology to meet global humanitarian challenges. It provides business incentives for reaching those in need: winners receive an acceleration certificate to expedite select proceedings at the USPTO, as well as public recognition of their work. The awards showcase how patent holders with vision are pioneering innovative ways to provide affordable, scalable, and sustainable solutions for the less fortunate. The essay submitted by the company in support of its entry is reproduced below, in its entirety.
