Intellectual property (IP) refers to exclusive legal rights granted to individuals, groups, or entities for “creations of the mind.”

In the biosciences, discussions concerning IP encompass the regulation of drugs and biologics research, production, and distribution; access to personal and familial genetic and neuroscience information; and the implications of the patenting system on research innovation, access to medicines, and distributive justice.
