Challenges and Opportunities in Life Sciences Today


Sarah Columbia and Dr. Rüdiger Herrmann will discuss “Challenges and Opportunities in Life Sciences Today” as part of the MIPLC Lecture Series on Monday, July 15, 2019. This lecture will cover many of the topics most pressing in the world of life sciences transactions and disputes today, drawing on experience with German, European, Chinese as well as US legal developments. The intent of the lecture is to provide a practical look at the issues practitioners need to understand to provide advice in transactions, disputes and other decision-making for life sciences companies. The presenters will address, in particular:

  1. Current trends in co-development, co-promotion, regional and joint venture deals
  2. Intellectual Property developments, including second medical use issues and new developments in antibody patent protection in Europe and the US
  3. Biosimilar trends and developments
  4. General issues which interface with data privacy and GDPR, but will not separately focus on data privacy or data breach issues in this lecture
