West Virginia University College of Law professor Sean Tu published a new article in Health Affairs Forefront on June 21, 2022. Professor Tu, with co-authors Dennis Crouch of the University of Missouri and Aaron Kesselheim of Harvard University, makes a proposal to change the panent approval and patent examination process.
