CeBIL Visitor Jorge L Contreras talks at CIPA Podcast

In his book The Genome Defense: Inside the Epic Legal Battle to Determine Who Owns Your DNA (Hachette/Algonquin, 2021), CeBIL visitor Professor Jorge Contreras brings this important and unique case to life. Through nearly 100 interviews with attorneys, advocates, judges, patients and government officials, Contreras peels back the layers of this remarkable episode in American legal history and explains not only what happened, but why and how, and what its implications are for the future of medical science.

Contreras talks at the new episode of the Two IPs CIPA (The Chartered Institute of Patent Attorneys) Podcast, along Duncan Matthews from Queen Mary University London. The episode is  co-hosted by Gwilym Roberts and Lee Davies and will discusses The Genome Defense ahead of book launch, co-organised by the London School of Economics and Queen Mary University of London.
