This program is part 3 of a 4-part "Animals and Bioengineering: A Consideration of Law, Ethics, and Science" presented by Duke Law School.

The Animals and Bioengineering Conference will bring together, for the first time, animal law and patent attorneys, litigators, scientists, ethicists, government regulators and industry representatives to explore the evolution and development of laws relating to the use of animals in bioengineering. This Conference will discuss some of the many ways in which animals are currently being used in bioengineering, including producing human medicines in transgenic animals, producing disease resistant farm animals, cloning animals for xenotransplantation and cloning animals for food applications. Both the present state of the law and the possible need for changes in the law will be addressed. For those new to these issues, there will be primer presentations on the ethics and science of genetic engineering.

Topics for this discussion include:

  • Ethical Issues in the Use of Animals
    • Ethics and the Genetic Engineering of Animals
    • The Ethics of Animal Biotechnology 
  • Harvard College v. Canada Commissioner of Patents (the Harvard mouse case)
  • International & Intellectual Law Perspectives
