Food and Drug Committee CLE at AIPLA Spring 2016 Meeting

Announcement Description

On the first day of the 2016 AIPLA Spring Meeting in Minneapolis, the Food and Drug Committee co-sponsored a CLE session with the Biotechnology Committee on scientific and legal issues related to genetically-modified organisms. The program was built on the Biotechnology Committee’s longstanding hypothetical company, Soteria Biosciences. The program was presented in the format of a Soteria press conference featuring Vicki Norton (Duane Morris) of VicIPedia as the host, Prof. Kan Wang (Iowa State) as Soteria’s CSO, Marian Flattery (DuPont) as Soteria’s General Counsel, Kathryn Hibbard (Greene Espel) as Soteria’s Chief Litigation Counsel, and Debora Plehn-Dujowich (Prismatic Law) as Soteria’s special outside counsel for genetic resources. Participating from the audience were Mark Pidkowich (Smart & Biggar) as an ace investigative journalist and Alice Martin (Barnes & Thornburg) as the founder of “Put the Gene-E in a Bottle,” an NGO. A summary of the substance of the meeting appears in the June issue of the Food and Drug Committee’s FDA Flash! newsletter.
