New Seminar Series: Property and Ownership in the Contemporary Life Sciences

by Esther Vicente

The InSIS BioProperty research group invites you to its forthcoming seminar series on property rights in the biosciences. The series explores the changing landscape of intellectual property rights in biomedical research. Should human embryonic stem cells be patentable? Can we use ‘Open Source’ models to advance research in synthetic biology? Do property rights hinder the ability of research groups to collaborate? How can we ensure equitable access to biomedical products and services? The speakers include experts from the field of law, public policy and the social sciences.
