By addressing gaps in the intellectual property framework surrounding federally funded research and helping to foster a robust ecosystem for public-private partnerships, 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 law’s 40th anniversary approaches, join Research!America, American Association for the Advancement of Science, Association of American Medical Colleges, Association of American Universities, and the Society for Neuroscience for an interactive panel discussion that will touch on the history and impact of the Bayh-Dole Act and explore the implications for science policy going forward.

Without continued support for health research, many of the most promising young scientists, their ideas and a myriad of potentially life-changing scientific breakthroughs will vanish into oblivion.
