Timo Minssen

Professor

Timo Minssen's  research concentrates on Intellectual Property-, Competition- & Regulatory Law with a special focus on new technologies in the pharma, life science & biotech sectors. His studies comprise a phletora of legal issues emerging in the lifecycle of biotechnological and medical products and processes -  from the regulation of research and incentives for innovation to technology transfer and commercialization. Timo is presenting frequently on a wide variety of pressing topics at international IP symposia, major law firms, the Universities of Oxford & Cambridge, Harvard Law School, MIT, and at the European Medicines Agency etc.. He has written 2 books and published 60+ articles and book chapters in leading international publications, such as Nature Biotech, PLoS-Computational Biology, Biotech. J., BLR, Person.Med., IIC, EIPR, ECLR, JIPLP, GRUR Int., Chi.-Kent J. Intell. Prop., IPQ, QMJIP, ERT, NIR & EUConst.LR. He is also a regular contributor on Harvard Law School's "Bill of Health" blog and co-heads the Copenhagen Biotech & Pharma Forum (CBPF).
