There is a longstanding debate on the role of intellectual property in assuring the research and development of affordable healthcare. The recent Indian Supreme Court’s denial of Novartis’s cancer drug, the US Supreme Court’s consideration of patenting the human genome, and the upcoming implementation of the Affordable Care Act bring these issues to the forefront. Both sides of the debate recognize the need for critical evaluation of the current system. Some argue that the system must be strengthened to generate and reward innovation; others argue that those protections should be relaxed to promote access. Any solution to this problem must be addressed on a global scale. We welcome papers that will contribute to this discussion. Topics may include the interplay of generic and branded drugs, the WTO TRIPS agreement and its impact on developing nations, the Affordable Care Act, patenting the human genome, and other topics involving public health and intellectual property. We will also accept papers on issues that address related topics such as false advertising and preemption under FDA law, FASTR and open access to research, and global health tourism, as well as new health technologies and implications for patient care, such as smart phones as medical diagnostic tools and other e-health developments.
