We welcome Jacob Sherkow, a law Professor at the Innovation Center for Law and Technology, at New York Law School. There he teaches a variety of courses related to intellectual property. His research focuses on how scientific developments, especially in the biosciences, affect patent law and litigation. Prof. Sherkow is a prolific scholar, the author of over two dozen articles on these and related topics in both traditional law reviews and scientific journals. Our conversation begins with an excellent CRISPR primer before traversing some fascinating questions about gene-editing patent litigation around the world, licensing issues, and the broader array of regulatory issues encountered by such emerging technologies.
