Intellectual Property Brown Bag Series

"Are Gene-Related Inventions Patentable?"

Noon - 2 p.m. Wednesday, March 10, 2010
Suffolk University Law School
120 Tremont St., Boston

"Are Gene-Related Inventions Patentable?" is the topic of the brown bag luncheon presented by Suffolk University Law School's Intellectual Property Law Concentration.

This is the question asked in Association for Molecular Pathology v. United States Patent and Trademark Office, more familiarly known as ACLU v. Myriad, currently pending in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. The case could have a profound effect on personalized medicine, particularly on the use of DNA sequences in diagnostics used to test for predisposition to certain cancers or other diseases and the effectiveness of certain medications.

Erik Paul Belt, a partner in the IP/IT Group of McCarter & English, LLP, is the featured speaker.
