Biopharmaceutical innovators responded heroically to the COVID-19 pandemic. In unprecedented time and with cutting-edge technologies, they created vaccines and other medical treatments that saved millions of lives around the world.

This talk explains how patents made possible the unprecedented response to the pandemic and why these vital property rights have been wrongly attacked.
