Joe Allen

FOUNDER AND EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, BAYH-DOLE 40
Joseph Allen served as a Professional Staffer on the U.S. Senate Judiciary Committee to former Senator Birch Bayh (D-IN). Allen played a key part in the successful passage of the landmark Bayh-Dole Act of 1980 and its subsequent amendments. The legislation was hailed by the Economist Technology Quarterly as “Possibly the most inspired piece of legislation to be enacted in America over the past half century… More than anything this single policy measure helped to reverse America’s precipitous slide into industrial irrelevance.”

Allen was awarded the prestigious Bayh-Dole Award by the Association of University Technology Managers in recognition of this achievement.
