About Luigi Palombi

My scholarship is directed towards the patent system, particularly its history, purpose and economic impact on both developing and developed countries. Particular interest is focused on how patentable subject matter has expanded to include life sciences and medicines, particularly since most developed countries excluded medicines until the late 1970s. More recently my scholarship has also included traditional knowledge and its role in the development of patentable inventions.
