For those of you interested in nanomedicine issues specifically, I wanted to make you aware of a new blog worth reading.  The Nanomedicine and IP Blog is a newly created site by Luca Escoffier, a PhD student at Queen Mary, University of London and is a Transatlantic Technology Law Forum (TTLF) fellow at Standford writing his dissertation on patenting medical nanotechnology inventions. Luca is now in the U.S. as visiting fellow at the University of Washington (and tells me he is enjoying Seattle).  Should be an interesting look into the specific field of nanomedicine as the sector develops.
