Center for Law, Health & Society faculty member, Yaniv Heled, was promoted to associate professor and granted tenure, as well as being named co-director of the new Center for Intellectual Property.
Heled practiced intellectual property law with Goodwin Proctor LLP in New York, His dissertation for his J.S.D. from Columbia University School of Law focused on the regulation of novel biomedical technologies. His work since joining the Georgia State faculty has continued to focus on the legal and ethical aspects of biomedical technologies, such as biologics and biosimilars, stem cells, cloning and DNA sequencing and testing.
