40 Years Later, Bayh-Dole Act Shows Bipartisanship Can Work


WSIU's Jennifer Fuller talks with  Betsy de Parry and Joe Allen about the passage of the Bayh-Dole Act in 1980, and how lessons from that legislation could apply today.

Jennifer Fuller joined the WSIU family at a very young age- as both a viewer and a listener! Growing up in Carterville, Jennifer enjoyed WSIU's PBS programming as a child and young adult, and then became even more involved when she attended SIUC and worked for both the radio and TV stations as a student.
