Innovation in the Age of COVID-19

Watch recording

In this special two-hour on-demand webinar, panelists sought to remove speculation and lift the veil by discussing what is really transpiring within the innovation landscape, using LexisNexis® PatentSight®. They also discussed what universities are doing and how private sector biopharma companies are responding. This tragic pandemic is leading to a flood of new innovation and getting the long term public policy right will matter for the next wave, whether that is a resurgence of COVID-19 or for the next pandemic.

Discussion points:

  • How university labs working with the private sector on a multitude of COVID-19 cures and treatments.
  • What it really takes to develop vaccines, drugs, treatments and whether enough incentive and proper incentive exists long term beyond this acute and rapid response to COVID-19.
  • The financial investment required and regulatory hurdles to getting a vaccine to market.
  • Why the rigidity of antitrust laws are not adopted to address such close collaborations among competitors, and what companies need to know.
  • Why there has been a deemphasis on medical diagnostics research in the United States and what Congress, the courts and the USPTO should do.
