Life Finds A Way: An Overview of the Nagoya Protocol from the U.S. Government
The Nagoya Protocol is a multilateral treaty that sets up a legal framework for utilizing genetic resources. It should be a part of every researchers thinking, from how to conduct research, to manage collections, and how to work with partners. Even for researchers based in the United States, familiarity with the Protocol, and what it requires, is important as provider countries may have rules/regulations/laws that carry obligations that apply to samples even after they have left the country, such as restrictions on use, third party transfer, and tracking of any shared benefits. Patrick Reilly from the U.S. Department of State will join us to conduct a webinar on the Protocol; offering a short history of how the Protocol was developed, what it actually says (and what it doesn't), the difference between monetary and non-monetary benefit sharing, and how the U.S. government can help. Following the presentation, Patrick will take questions from our webinar participants.
