The Center for Law and Biomedical Sciences was delighted to receive full approval from the Utah State Board of Regents in December 2015. We are now an official part of the University on an ongoing basis and are delighted to be able to continue our work in supporting the discussion of issues in law and biotechnology, law and bioethics, and health law and policy. For the past two years, we have sponsored annual symposia on Precision Medicine in conjunction with the Huntsman Cancer Institute and University of Utah Health Sciences. We also sponsored our colloquium on law and biomedicine; our wonderful speakers this past year included scholarly experts such as Jane Bambauer, Robert Cook-Deegan, Erika Lietzan, and Michael Saks, as well as many wonderful local lawyers and policy makers in the area of health law and intellectual property including Ken Chahine, Jennifer Danielson, Doug Hammer, and L. Rex Sears. Our fourteen student fellows this year are working on a diverse set of projects: ethics and genetics, privacy and family health information, patent work for students in the U’s Bench to Bedside competition, our pro bono medical/legal clinic, and research on a variety of topics in law and intellectual property.
