McDonnell Boehnen Hulbert & Berghoff LLP partners Sherri Oslick, Ph.D. and Kirsten Thomson appear in a July 2, 2014 online Groks Science Radio Show and Podcast entitled “Precision Medicine.” How much can our own genetics determine the diagnosis of our illness or determine the course of treatment? The Chicago chapter of the Women In Bio organization hosted a panel discussion in May on the topic of precision medicine strategies—what it is, how it came about, the challenges we face, and what the future holds. Groks Science and Radio Show hosts attended the event, and spoke with organizers, attendees, and panelists about precision medicine, and women’s role in this rapidly developing field. In their interview segment, Dr. Oslick and Ms. Thomson discuss the role of patent law in precision medicine and in the field of genetics generally.
