Petrie-Flom Academic Fellow Rachel Sachs presented her paper, "Innovation Law and Policy: Preserving the Future of Personalized Medicine," at the 2015 Works-in-Progress in Intellectual Property (WIPIP) Colloquium.  Held this year on February 6 and 7 at the United States Patent & Trademark Office in Alexandria, Virginia, WIPIP brings together scholars from all facets of intellectual property law to discuss and debate new research in the field.  Rachel's paper presents a broad theory of innovation policy, weaving together patent law, FDA regulation, and healthcare reimbursement to present a comprehensive view of the way innovation incentives act within the market.  Her paper focuses in particular on the diagnostic testing industry, grounding her broader theory in a detailed case study.
