Innovation and Liability in Biotechnology

Innovation and Liability in Biotechnology

Transnational and Comparative Perspectives

Stuart J. Smyth, A. Bryan Endres, Thomas P. Redick and Drew L. Kershen

Innovation and Liability in Biotechnology introduces and articulates an innovative framework, the Liability Analysis Framework (LAF), which offers a new perspective from which stakeholders and society can assess, manage and communicate about liability in relation to innovation. This path-breaking book provides a detailed description of the relationship between risk and liability. Risk and liability are not synonymous and the fact that, at times, the terms have been used in very close proximity has resulted in confusion and misunderstandings.
