Naina discussed her research framework and preliminary findings regarding the factors that may influence the pharmaceutical patent quality in Europe. She also discussed the preliminary empirical evidence including the preliminary results from a case-study of a pharmaceutical CMO (Contract Manufacturing Organization) where she spent a month interviewing various experts.
