has fired another legal salvo in the prolonged patent battle over CRISPR the revolutionary gene-editing technology that has spawned a billion-dollar industry UC leads a group of litigants who contend that the US Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) wrongly sided with the Broad Institute in Cambridge Massachusetts and two partners—Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge—in February when it ruled that the Broad group invented the use of CRISPR in eukaryotic cells After that ruling UC moved the battleground to the US Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit In a 25 July brief to the Federal Circuit the UC group contends that PTAB “ignored key evidence” and “made multiple errors” The CRISPR battle The UC litigants indisputably first showed in 2012 that CRISPR could work in DNA of simpler organisms and soon after filed a patent application on the gene-editing technique They claim the Broad group learned from that disclosed invention and applied CRISPR to eukaryotic cells The essential legal question is whether the Broad’s patent application is a novel patentable invention or whether it was “obvious” in the sense that “anyone skilled in the art”—in other words any trained molecular biologist—would have a “reasonable expectation of success” of using the CRISPR system to edit genes in eukaryotic cells The UC group contends PTAB ignored key decisions on these general questions made by the US Supreme Court and the Federal Circuit It reiterated its long-held claim that applying CRISPR to eukaryotic cells was so obvious that six different labs did it in the same time frame which it complains the PTAB “essentially dismissed as ‘irrelevant’” And its brief notes that patent examiners rejected similar eukaryotic cell CRISPR patent applications from Sigma-Aldrich and ToolGen—filed before the Broad’s patent application—because it made claims that were “non-novel” or obvious in light of UC’s disclosed work Jacob Sherkow an intellectual property attorney at the New York Law School in New York City who has closely followed each round in the fierce battle says the UC group’s brief at times “overplays these mistakes relative to the PTAB’s analysis” He notes that the PTAB’s decision was “thorough” and the standards to overturn its decisions are high “While there were some interesting chestnuts in its brief—such as UC pointing out that the PTAB virtually ignored some important patents pending at the time [the Broad] patent was filed—I don’t think that’s going to be enough to win the day [for] UC” he says In a statement the Broad Institute suggested the UC will not prevail in its challenge: Notably the [UC] brief hinges on its argument that although [UC]’s work simply involved characterizing a purified enzyme in a test tube it rendered obvious that genome editing could be made to work in living mammalian cells This is inaccurate as the PTAB noted repeatedly in its decision Updated 7/26/2017 12:33 pm: Statement from the Broad Institute addedNobel laureate Elizabeth Blackburn commissioned a "faculty issues" report that addressed women’s status at the Salk Institute soon after she took its helm in 2016 Bret Hartman/TED Leaked documents expose long-standing gender tensions at Salk Institute By Meredith WadmanAug 23 2017 3:10 PM Senior female faculty at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies raise more than twice as much in National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding for scientists working in their labs as their male counterparts according to a 2016 internal report on "faculty issues" requested by leaders of the San Diego California institution Yet Salk leaders favored male scientists by granting them greater access to internal funds and other resources the report implies echoing gender discrimination lawsuits filed last month against the research center Salk officials vigorously disputed that suggestion this week Still the internal report and other in-house documents obtained by Science provide a glimpse of the issues that have fueled longstanding gender-related tensions within the storied 57-year-old institution founded by polio vaccine pioneer Jonas Salk The report was among several commissioned early in 2016 by Nobel prize-winning biologist Elizabeth Blackburn who had just become the institute’s president It was prepared by a group of faculty members chaired by Beverly Emerson a molecular biologist who is one of three plaintiffs in last month’s lawsuits Citing the pending litigation Salk has declined to release the report and a similar gender-based analysis from 2003; both are cited in Emerson’s lawsuit Salk said in a statement that the report and a second similar document prepared by Katherine Jones another plaintiff are "draft documents containing opinions and self-titled ‘findings’ many of which are misguided or we disagree with or dispute" Related stories Emerson’s committee examined several issues including the staff sizes and NIH funding of laboratories run by 24 tenured professors at the institute four of whom were women (The analysis excluded professors supported by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute) It found that Salk’s female-run laboratories were four of its five smallest Excluding the principal investigators the labs run by the four women had an average of three scientists per laboratory The 20 male professors had an average of 125 per laboratory The women however won more per capita NIH funding: an average of $195000 for each staff scientist not counting themselves Their male counterparts raised about $95000 in NIH funds per staff scientist The analysis looked only at NIH grants on which a Salk professor was listed as principal investigator (PI) or co-PI What the report calls the "striking inverse ratio" between lab size and NIH support per scientist implies that Salk leaders disproportionately support male-run labs with institutional funds drawn from foundations individual donors and other sources Those institutional funds were "awarded through a largely nontransparent mechanism" the report charges which appeared to be contributing to a "significant gender-specific bias" in funding that favors male scientists Evidence of bias A disputed study of laboratories run by tenured faculty at the Salk Institute found that female-led laboratories had fewer staff scientists but won more funding from the National Institutes of Health per scientist than male-led labs Three senior Salk women allege that institute leaders nonetheless gave male scientists preferential access to institute funding that allowed them to maintain larger staffs CREDITS: (GRAPHIC) J YOU/SCIENCE; (DATA) REPORT BY THE FACULTY ISSUES SUB-GROUP OF THE COMMUNITY AND CULTURE COMMITTEE Salk rejects that analysis "The numbers related to funding by faculty member are simply wrong" it said It notes that the computations do not include funding coming into Salk labs through NIH subcontracts or other government agencies (a qualification also noted by the report’s authors) and that some male professors win private awards without help from Salk "There is absolutely no accurate basis to assert that large labs achieve that size due to funding received from Salk" according to the institute’s statement It adds that the three plaintiffs’ labs "receive more ‘Salk’ funds on average than those run by [tenured] men" Salk’s efforts to hire female scientists have sputtered the report suggests According to the analysis 15 men and four women joined the faculty mostly at junior levels from 2010 to 2016 During the same period four men and one woman were offered full professorships but declined The numbers do not include Yale University immunologist Susan Kaech who plans to join Salk as a fully tenured professor early next year And the woman who declined an offer tuberculosis researcher Lalita Ramakrishnan says gender-related issues had no influence on her decision to instead take a position at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom Ramakrishnan says Salk offered a warm welcome and a "fantastic" salary increase but she chose Cambridge because of its unparalleled collection of mutant zebrafish that are instrumental to her work—and because her brother lives there The 2003 internal report also obtained by Science makes it clear that recruiting female faculty has long been a challenge for Salk From 2000 to 2003 seven men accepted assistant professor offers and two rejected them But all five women who were offered assistant professor posts declined That report called for concerted efforts to recruit women and urged development of transparent policies on promotion and tenure It also called for the president’s office to develop a database tracking the allocation of space and resources to individual labs to be "perused on a regular basis for gender-specific inequities" The 2016 report echoes those recommendations Its list of nine recommendations calls for Salk to launch a "clustered hire" of at least three senior female faculty; to impose term limits on chairmanships and memberships of academic governance committees long dominated by men; to establish a written transparent policy for awarding institutional "bridge" funds to tide over labs whose government funding lapses; and to allow any faculty member to apply through a peer-reviewed process for private funding opportunities in which Salk chooses who applies Emerson alleges that Blackburn and then-Board of Trustees Chairman Irwin Jacobs "completely ignored the damning evidence of gender discrimination" in the 2016 report as well as a finding in another 2016 white paper on finances that "the mechanism for distribution of Institute resources may not be gender-neutral" Neither finding she charges was taken up with the board In its statement Salk said "general concepts" from the documents were presented to the board "as a primer for a broad-based strategic planning process That process is still underway" The institute said it has undertaken many initiatives aimed at increasing female faculty numbers and support including providing childcare allowances and hiring a chief scientific officer who reviews job applicant pools for diversity Salk also noted that three of the four tenured female professors hold endowed chairs and two have been elected chairperson of the faculty’s governing Academic Council; currently 32% of the institute’s junior faculty are women The documents obtained by Science suggest that Salk is dealing with substantial financial pressures even as it confronts gender issues According to an internal financial document from 2016 in 2015 the institute’s operating shortfall was $32 million In 2016 government grants provided 43% of Salk’s revenue down from 65% in 2006 and a net decrease of 36 research project grants That makes the institute more reliant on endowment income and private and foundation gifts that cover a smaller share of overhead costs than government grants Salk’s endowment per faculty member at $7 million is at the bottom of a list of a half dozen comparable independent biomedical research institutes such as the Stowers Institute for Medical Research in Kansas City Missouri And Salk’s faculty is shrinking and aging; the number of faculty dropped from 53 to 44 from 2006 to 2015 and 43% of faculty members were over age 60 in 2016 Salk said in an email that the 2016 financial report is an outdated draft and that the institute “in many ways is now in the best financial and operational position it has ever been” It noted that a six-year fundraising campaign that concluded in 2015 raised $361 million exceeding its $300 million target And it disputed that the institute ran an operating deficit of $32 million in 2015 as the internal draft report stated and said that “for fiscal years 2015 2016 and 2017 the institute posted an operating surplus averaging $11 million with 2015 yielding the largest surplus of the three There was no operating shortfall in 2015” The statement added that the draft report’s description of declining federal award income in the decade that ended in 2016 was “completely offset" by growth in income from investments and non-federal awards The email also denied that Salk’s faculty is “aging and shrinking” The faculty number reported in the 2016 report as having fallen from 53 in 2006 to 44 in 2015 will grow to 51 by next March when two new members join the email states Today the average faculty member age is 53 the Salk email said Updated 08/23/2017 9:44 pm: This story has been updated to include the Salk Institute’s response to the internal 2016 financial report obtained by Science 09-A Technical Level Symposium? should show zero tolerance in this case. “These are
