description: The USPTO Cancer Moonshot Patent Data contains detailed information on published patent applications and granted patents relevant to cancer research and development (R&D). We generate the dataset using USPTO examiner tools to execute a series of queries designed to identify cancer-specific patents and patent applications. We apply several approaches to ensure coverage of the various fields and subject matter that cancer-related innovations encompass. These include drugs, diagnostics, surgical devices, data analytics, and genomic-based inventions. The final dataset consist of roughly 270,000 patent documents spanning the 1976 to 2016 period.
