Patent Policy in Genomics and Human Genetics: A Public Health Perspective
This workshop, convened by Dr Katerina Sideri, will bring together academics and practitioners to examine the issue of patent governance in the public interest.
The debate will be centred on four themes: the need to improve the quality of patents issued, gene patents and genetic testing, university licensing of patents, and the relationship between scientific commons and proprietary assets in research collaborations.
