Bayh-Dole @ 30: Mapping The Future of University Patenting. Day 1, Panel 1; 29 April 2011

Bayh-Dole @ 30: Mapping The Future of University Patenting Academic experts and industry leaders from UC Davis and around the world explore questions regarding the way in which intellectual property and patent law can maximize the economic and social benefits of technological innovation in "Bayh-Dole @ 30: Mapping the Future of University Patenting." The event, jointly hosted by the new UC Davis Center for Science and Innovation Studies, UC Davis School of Law, the UC Davis Division of Social Sciences, and the UC Davis Science and Technology Studies Program, took place on April 29-20 in the UC Davis Buehler Alumni and Visitor Center and King Hall. The event is titled for the Bayh-Dole Act, a piece of federal legislation enacted by Congress in 1980 that assigned intellectual property control to universities, businesses, and nonprofits for discoveries arising from government-funded research. The legislation reversed the presumption of title for such research, which prior to Bayh-Dole would have belonged to the government. The act figures prominently in numerous high-profile legal battles over intellectual property and patents, including the current U.S. Supreme Court case Stanford v. Roche, a dispute over Stanford University's intellectual property rights to federally funded drug research. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Friday, April 29 AGR Room, UC Davis Alumni Center 2:15 pm - 2:30 pm: "Welcome" Dean George R.
