On 28 October 2010, IP Osgoode hosted Professor Graham Dutfield of the University of Leeds School of Law, who discussed research that demonstrates how the development and commercialization of hormones as pharmaceuticals represents an example of how IP policy, scientific developments, and the business of pharmaceuticals come together to shape the future of an industry. Professor Dutfield’s work specifically shows how the skills and tools developed by the pharmaceutical industry during the rise of hormone research from the 1930s to the 1960s continue to be used today.
