Knowledge Ecology International, an influential Washington, DC-based non-governmental group working on public health and knowledge access issues, has added a new staff attorney.
Krista Cox joined KEI this month, and will be involved in the organisation’s substantive work related to access to medicines and access to knowledge, KEI said. Cox fills the position vacated by Judit Rius Sanjuan, who headed to Médecins Sans Frontières in New York earlier this year.
According to her bio, Cox was the staff attorney for Universities Allied for Essential Medicines (UAEM), working on advocacy for access to essential medicines, researching the Bayh-Dole Act (on intellectual property rights for federal research) and its analogues, gene patent issues, and transparency. Cox earned her J.D. with honors from the University of Notre Dame, focussed on international law and human rights, and has experience in immigration law. She is admitted to practice in California and before the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit.
