"The inspiration for the collection of essays in this volume, from contributors of widely differing backgrounds, came from an international conference convened at the University of Cambridge in 2015, on the theme 'Patents on Life: Through the Lenses of Law, Religious Faith and Social Justice'. The conference was organised jointly by the Von Hugel Institute ('VHI') for Critical Catholic Inquiry at St Edmund's College, and the Murphy Institute for Catholic Thought, Law, and Public Policy at the University of St. Thomas, Minnesota."--page 3.
