     LAURA   PEDRAZA-FARISA: I'm really excited to moderate this
discussion, which is going to center mainly around Section 101 (35 U.S.C.
§ 101) kinds of legal issues, and if we have time we can branch out to talk
about inter partes review. So, let me start by introducing the members of the
panel, and I'll give a few introductory comments to sort of frame the issues
that we will talk about. Then we'll turn it over to the panelists to give some
more specific answers to the big issues that I'm going to frame.
     My  name is Laura Pedraza-Farifia, and I am an associate professor here
at Northwestern where I specialize in patent law. I also teach the intellectual
property survey course and seminars on innovation and technology. Let me
introduce our speakers. We have Ann Marie Wahls, who  is a partner in the
litigation and trial department at Latham & Watkins. She has lots of trial
experience, experience in complex litigation matters, and also experience in
biotechnology, which is very relevant to this discussion that we're going to
be having here.
     And then, let me introduce Hari Santhanam, who is a partner in the IP
group of Kirkland & Ellis. Again, a trial lawyer with lots of experience, and
experience in particular in the biotechnology area, which is so relevant for
the conversation that we're going to have today.
     We  have Rod Passman,  who  is actually an MD, so he's going to give
us a perspective on practicing physicians. He also has some experience in
innovation and  trying to figure out how patents impact  his day-to-day
     And finally, we have Valerie Eaton, who works at Northwestern in the
immunology   department and is currently pursuing an MSL degree.
