Question Description

  1. Grant Moderna the exclusive rights to use Johnson & Johnson’s Technology Q for the life of its patent. This license gives Moderna the exclusive right to market, distribute, and manufacture Vaccine Q19 as developed using Technology Q. Johnson & Johnson views the patent as functional intellectual property.
  2. Assign two full-time employees to perform research and development work for Moderna in a specially designated Johnson & Johnson lab facility. The primary objective of these service is to get regulatory approval to market and distribute Vaccine Q19 using Technology Q.
