A Healthy Dose of IP: The Evolving Legal Landscape of the Health Field
PIPG invites you to its 2017 Symposium on Thursday, March 16—the group’s Tenth Annual Symposium that you will not want to miss! This year, the symposium will provide a forum to discuss an assortment of emerging issues surrounding intellectual property in the health field.
The symposium will kick off with a keynote address from Charlene Stern, Senior Director of IP and Legal Affairs at Editas Medicine and key player in the current CRISPR patent battle. After the keynote, there will be a panel addressing IP policy in the pharmaceutical industry and related economic considerations in that sphere. Following that discussion, another panel will explore the IP and privacy concerns accompanying the increasing prevalence of “smart” medical devices, including Knobbe Martens partners Gerard von Hoffmann and Bryan Wahl. A final panel will then explore the development of patent law in the context of personalized medicine and genetics.
