The talk will focus on ways patents and patent licensing are used (and could be used) as governance instruments for human genome editing. Professor Sherkow will provide a brief introduction to the main tool of gene editing, CRISPR/cas9 which has itself been subject to a long running patent dispute. The talk will then proceed to discuss some mechanics and concerns of the patent instrument as a governance tool.
