Juno Therapeutics Resolves Litigation with University of Pennsylvania and Novartis Pharmaceuticals

Juno Therapeutics reached a settlement agreement to resolve litigation with the Trustees of the University of Pennsylvania and Novartis Pharmaceuticals, under which Novartis will make payments an initial payment of $12.3 million to Juno in addition to future milestone payments. Also under the agreement, Novartis will pay Juno mid-single digit royalties from U.S. net sales of product candidates related to the disputed contract and patent claims, as well as a low double-digit percentage of the royalties Novartis pays to the University of Pennsylvania for global net sales for the product candidates. Juno noted it became a party to the litigation after it entered into a December 2013 license agreement with St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, also a party in the litigation, for patent rights owned by St. Jude. The litigation began in July 2012 in connection with a contract dispute between St. Jude and Penn, and was broadened in March 2013 to include a dispute concerning a St. Jude's U.S. Patent titled Chimeric Receptors with 4-1BB Stimulatory Signaling Domain. Payments received by Juno will be shared with St. Jude under the terms of the license agreement between Juno and St. Jude. The parties also agreed to dismiss all claims in the relevant legal proceedings.

University of Pennsylvania and the Wharton School Launch Penn Wharton China Center

The University of Pennsylvania and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania announced the opening of the Penn Wharton China Center in Beijing, China. The Center is an important expansion of Penn's engagement with China, which began in 1896 when the first Chinese student enrolled at Penn. It will operate through the University's China based affiliate, Penn Wharton Consulting (Beijing) Co, LTD. The Center will serve as a valuable resource and vibrant gathering place enhancing learning and research opportunities to the benefit of Penn's faculty, students, alumni and friends in China. Through its consulting programs, it will also support Chinese executives and others in acquiring the practical skills and perspectives that will help them successfully lead their organizations in a global context. To celebrate the opening, Provost Price will lead a delegation of more than 40 faculty and senior administrators from Penn that includes Vice Provost for Global Initiatives Ezekiel Emanuel, Dean of the Wharton School Geoffrey Garrett and seven other Penn deans. They are convening a two-day series of academic discussions this month featuring a roundtable with Chinese university leaders to discuss issues in higher education, panel discussions with senior Chinese business leaders and Penn scholars, and research talks with Penn faculty and deans.
