• "Of Mice And Academics"

IP Concentration speaker looks at effect of openness on innovation

3 -5 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 11, 2008
Suffolk University Law School, Room 305
120 Tremont St., Boston

The Intellectual Property Concentration at Suffolk Law School presents "Of Mice and Academics: Examining the Effect of Openness on Innovation," a lecture by MIT Sloan School of Management Professor Fiona Murray.

Murray received BA and MA degrees in Chemistry from the University of Oxford before coming to the United States, where she received her doctoral degree from Harvard University’s School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. 

At the Sloan School, Murray studies and teaches innovation and entrepreneurship, with an emphasis on the life sciences sector. She is well known for her work on the influence of growing economic incentives, particularly intellectual property, on the rate and direction of scientific progress, particularly in the areas of genomics, stem cells, and mouse genetics. 

Murray works with a wide range of internal and external innovators -- through traditional contracts and “Open Innovation” mechanisms -- that are both commercially successful and at the forefront of science. She is also actively involved in policy debates over the appropriate use of intellectual property and licensing in universities and on when and when not to use patents to promoted discovery research in neglected diseases.
