For the last 11 years, Baldwins Intellectual Property has been involved in the ‘Issues in Drug Design and Development’ (CHEM 392) course at The University of Auckland.
This paper covers intellectual property and patent law in the pharmaceutical industry, an overview of the legal and regulatory framework for drug design and development, along with the clinical trials process, codes of practice, health and safety issues and case studies. Baldwins have provided lecturers each year to cover the intellectual property component of this paper. The Baldwins lecturers in 2013 were Rosemary Wallis (Partner), Rachel McDonald (Senior Associate) and Katherine Hebditch (Trainee Patent Attorney).
Baldwins award a $500 prize for the top achiever in Issues in Drug Design and Development (CHEM 392) paper. This prize rewards excellence in this field and aims to promote intellectual property and encourage graduates to consider future employment in this area.
The Baldwins’ prize-winner in 2013 was Nelson Lam. This prize was awarded at the end of year celebration held at the Department of Chemistry on 12 December 2013 which Rosemary Wallis, Katherine Hebditch, Emma Crowley (HR Executive) and Amanda Gibson (Marketing Executive) attended.
