You are invited to a briefing on Advancing Global Health: The Critical Importance of Intellectual Property hosted in cooperation with Rep. Leonard Lance (R-NJ) and Rep. Scott Peters (D-CA)
Co-Chairs, Congressional Life Science Caucus.

Why are patents necessary to foster new inventions? Is the U.S. still a world leader in innovation? How does the patent system support the development of new treatments and cures? 
Please join us for an informed discussion about the essential role of intellectual property in fueling new ideas to diagnose, treat and cure diseases; the importance of IP protections from discovery to research to development; and the risks for human health associated with weakening IP protections.

Our distinguished speakers include:

  • Adam Mossoff, Co-Founder, Center for the Protection of Intellectual Property (CPIP), George Mason University
  • Patrick Kilbride, Senior Vice President, Global Innovation Policy Center, US Chamber of Commerce
  • Corey Salsberg, Vice President, Global Head IP Affairs, Novartis Pharmaceuticals
