Biomedical consulting agreements : a guide for academics by Edward Klees( )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 553 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There can be a clash of cultures when academic scientists negotiate consulting agreements with biotechnology or pharmaceutical companies. Scientists, accustomed to the collegial atmosphere of the laboratory and sometimes disdainful of legal paperwork, might be less than diligent in reading the fine print. On the other hand, a company - motivated to protect discoveries and trade secrets - might write provisions that are favorable to its interests, leaving it to the scientist to raise objections or offer a counterproposal. The scientist, meanwhile, might believe that it would be impolite or antagonistic to raise questions about a company's agreement. This book offers an essential guide for academic scientists and physicians who are considering consulting work in the field of biomedicine. In it, the authors - an attorney and a Nobel Laureate in Medicine, both with extensive experience reviewing and negotiating consulting agreements - outline key issues to consider before signing a consulting agreement. These issues range from the obvious - intellectual property, confidentiality, and fees - to those that might not spring immediately to mind, including indemnity, different classes of stock, and the relevance of insider trading and securities laws"--P.

A nematode as a model organism : the genetics of programmed cell death by H. Robert Horvitz( Visual )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 49 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Producer) The nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, a microscopic worm, provides an excellent model organism to analyze development and behavior. This presentation focuses on programmed cell death. Vivid demonstrations of single-cell laser microsurgery let the viewer participate in an experiment designed to help reveal whether dying cells are "murdered" by neighboring cells or are "committing suicide." Mutations are induced and isolated, genes are characterized genetically, and DNA sequences are determined. A step-by-step series of graphic illustrations demonstrates the identification and analysis of one nematode cell-death gene, which is discovered to be similar to a human oncogene. The human oncogene is shown to be able to substitute for the nematode gene in a mutant worm. Professor Horvitz takes the viewer on a fascinating journey that unmasks the genetic basis of programmed cell death and indicates its relationship to human cancers and, perhaps, to neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease

Is commercial cellular suitable for mission critical broadband? : study on use of commercial mobile networks and equipment for "mission-critical" high-speed broadband communications in specific sectors: executive summary( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The aim of this study is to evaluate the options for mission critical communications utilising mobile broadband in three sectors {u2013} public protection and disaster relief (PPDR, principally police, fire and emergency medical services), utilities (electricity, gas and water) and the intelligent transport systems (ITS) now entering service, with a focus on road and rail. The two main options considered are the public land mobile networks (PLMNs) run by commercial operators and the dedicated networks created specifically for use in these sectors
Is commercial cellular suitable for mission critical broadband? : study on use of commercial mobile networks and equipment for "mission-critical" high-speed broadband communications in specific sectors: final report( )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The goal of the Study was to examine the potential role that commercial mobile networks {u2013} with associated economies of scale for commercial equipment (including handheld devices for end-users) {u2013} could play in ensuring the provision of ?mission-critical? high-speed broadband communications in the following sectors in Europe 1) Public safety, civil protection and disaster relief (PPDR); 2) Utilities {u2013} intelligent energy management systems and smart energy grids; 3) Intelligent transport safety and transport management systems (ITS). The two main options considered were public land mobile networks run by commercial operators and the dedicated networks created specifically for use in these sectors. The Study examined broadband needs of all three sectors. Five scenarios based on different types of deployments were studied: 1) Dedicated networks and dedicated specialised equipment; 2) Commercial mobile networks and commercial equipment; 3) Dedicated networks with commercial networking equipment; 4) Hybrid networks; 5) Common multi-purpose network. The European society depends on mission-critical services. Some of them increasingly require wireless broadband support. High-speed mobile broadband networks are currently deployed in Europe, but mission-critical users have two reservations about relying exclusively on commercial mobile services: 1) Can commercial mobile operators (MNOs) be trusted to provide reliable services under fixed-price contracts over long periods of time? 2) Will MNOs provide the needed level of network availability, resilience, service quality, security and coverage, particularly in emergencies? Commercial mobile broadband networks could be used for mission-critical services with the right legal, regulatory and contractual framework and only if several requirements are fully met. The Study report also outlines measures which could contribute to build the confidence of mission-critical users in the MNOs. The Study concludes that for the medium and long term, sharing commercial MNO infrastructures for both public and mission critical purposes makes economic sense
