TTO Director Co-Author in SciTech Lawyer

October 25, 2012

We want to call your attention to an article co-authored by Dr. Becky Mahurin, Director of the TTO, published in the American Bar Association's SciTech Lawyer.  The article titled BioProspecting, A hot Spring of Legal Issues profiles the complex and changing legal landscape of this subject and brings out Dr. Mahurin's experience in working with Yellowstone National Park on their first benefits sharing agreement as well as their commercialization process.  The article further discusses issues around sample collection on US state lands, tribal lands and in foreign countries.  It's a must read for researchers, entrepreneurs and business professionals utilizing foreign materials gathered through bioprospecting.
