Oct. 14: "Gene Patents: The Never-Ending Saga," presented by Robert Cook-Deegan

Robert Cook-Deegan, MD, Duke University, presents an Ethics@Discovery lecture in Lubar Commons (Room 7200, Law Building)  on Oct. 14 at noon.

In AMP v. Myriad, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that DNA sequences corresponding to sequences found inside living organisms (including humans) are not eligible for patenting. Cook-Deegan's presentation will explore the potential effects of AMP and subsequent related litigation on academic science and the biotechnology industry.
