By addressing gaps in the intellectual property framework surrounding federally funded research and helping to foster a robust ecosystem for public-private partnership, the 1980 Bayh-Dole Act has played a pivotal role in fueling scientific and technological progress, conveying the benefits of federally funded research to the public, and – in an ever-changing fiscal and economic climate – assuring sustained public and policymaker support for federal research funding. As the 40th anniversary of this landmark law approaches, this interactive panel discussion will touch on the history and impact of Bayh-Dole and explore the implications for science policy going forward.
