  2. Biomaterials Innovation

    Biomaterials Innovation

    Alexander Styhre
    Rapid advances in the life sciences means that there is now a far more detailed understanding of biological systems on the cellular, molecular and genetic levels. Sited at the intersection between the life sciences, the engineering sciences and the design sciences, innovations in the biomaterials industry are expected to garner increasing attention and play a key role in future development. This book examines the biomaterials innovations taking place in corporations and in academic research settings today. Learn More

  3. Handbook on Agriculture, Biotechnology and Development

    Handbook on Agriculture, Biotechnology and Development

    Edited by Stuart J. Smyth, Peter W.B. Phillips, David Castle
    This book is a compendium of knowledge, experience and insight on agriculture, biotechnology and development. Beginning with an account of GM crop adoptions and attitudes towards them, the book assesses numerous crucial processes, concluding with detailed insights into GM products. Drawing on expert perspectives of leading authors from 57 different institutions in 16 countries, it provides a unique, global overview of agbiotech following 20 years of adoption. Many consider GM crops the most rapid agricultural innovation adopted in the history of agriculture. This book provides insights as to why the adoption has occurred globally at such a rapid rate.

  4. Patenting Medical and Genetic Diagnostic Methods

    Patenting Medical and Genetic Diagnostic Methods

    Eddy D. Ventose
    This well-researched book explores in detail the issue of patenting medical and genetic diagnostic methods in the United States. It examines decisions of the Patent Office Boards of Appeal and the early courts on the question of whether medical treatments were eligible for patent protection under section 101 of the Patents Act. It then traces the legislative history of the Medical Procedures and Affordability Act that provided immunity for physicians from patent infringement suits. After considering the Supreme Court’s jurisprudence on patent eligibility, the book then comprehensively sets out how the Federal Circuit and the Supreme Court have dealt with the issue, paying close attention to the Supreme Court’s recent decision in Bilski and Prometheus.

    Imitation to Innovation in China

    Yahong Li
    Following decades in which China’s approach to technology has been to imitate, the country is now transforming itself to become innovation-oriented. This pioneering study examines whether patents play a similar role in promoting innovation in China as they do in the West, exploring the interplay between patents and China’s biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries in particular.

  9. Innovation and Liability in Biotechnology

    Innovation and Liability in Biotechnology

    Stuart J. Smyth, A. Bryan Endres, Thomas P. Redick, Drew L. Kershen
    Innovation and Liability in Biotechnology introduces and articulates an innovative framework, the Liability Analysis Framework (LAF), which offers a new perspective from which stakeholders and society can assess, manage and communicate about liability in relation to innovation. This path-breaking book provides a detailed description of the relationship between risk and liability. Risk and liability are not synonymous and the fact that, at times, the terms have been used in very close proximity has resulted in confusion and misunderstandings. Learn More

  10. The Role of Intellectual Property Rights in Biotechnology Innovation

    The Role of Intellectual Property Rights in Biotechnology Innovation

    Edited by David Castle
    Intellectual property rights (IPRs), particularly patents, occupy a prominent position in innovation systems, but to what extent they support or hinder innovation is widely disputed. Through the lens of biotechnology, this book delves deeply into the main issues at the crossroads of innovation and IPRs to evaluate claims of the positive and negative impacts of IPRs on innovation.

  11. Gene Cartels

    Gene Cartels

    Luigi Palombi
    Starting with the 13th century, this book explores how patents have been used as an economic protectionist tool, developing and evolving to the point where thousands of patents have been ultimately granted not over inventions, but over isolated or purified biological materials. DNA, invented by no man and once thought to be ‘free to all men and reserved exclusively to none’, has become cartelised in the hands of multinational corporations. The author questions whether the continuing grant of patents can be justified when they are now used to suppress, rather than promote, research and development in the life sciences. Learn More

  12. Public or Private Economies of Knowledge?

    Public or Private Economies of Knowledge?

    Mark Harvey, Andrew McMeekin
    This book presents an analytical framework for understanding the shifting ‘great divide’ in capitalist economies of knowledge. The authors develop a novel economic sociology of innovation, based on the ‘instituted economic process’ approach. By focusing on economies of knowledge, they seek to demonstrate that capitalism is multi-modal at its core, with interdependent growth of market and non-market modes of production, distribution, exchange and use.

    The Economics of Biotechnology

    Edited by Maureen McKelvey, Luigi Orsenigo
    This authoritative collection covers the economics and business side of the social scientific debate about the economics of ‘modern biotechnology’ or ‘the biotechnology industry’. Biotechnology has attracted an enormous interest. Research has spawned work on a variety of theoretical issues about economic dynamics, about innovation systems and about what might be called – in the current jargon – the modern ‘learning economy’.

  14. Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Biotechnology, An International Perspective

    Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Biotechnology, An International Perspective

    Damian Hine, John Kapeleris
    The biotechnology industry across the globe is growing dramatically in line with rapidly emerging scientific and technological developments. This book explores both the theoretical and practical aspects of entrepreneurship in the biotechnology industry, focusing on the innovation processes underpinning success for new biotechnology firms (NBFs). It argues that biotechnology is at a crossroads: to date the science has been solid, yet commercial success remains elusive, and that it will be the commercial success of NBFs which will dictate the long term viability of this crucial industry.
