Teddy Henriksen

Teddy is a Lecturer in Law in the School of Law and Society at UniSC. Teddy holds a Doctorate in Law, Bachelor of Laws (Hons) and a Bachelor of Pharmacy and has completed a Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice. Teddy is admitted to the legal profession in the Supreme Court of Queensland, is registered to practice as a pharmacist with the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency and is a member of the Pharmaceutical Society of Australia.

Teddy has been tutoring and lecturing in a number of branches of law at UniSC since 2018 including Patent Law, Tort Law, Foundations of Australian Law, Criminal Law and Corporations Law. Before commencing teaching and researching at UniSC Teddy practiced as a pharmacist and has extensive experience in owning and managing community pharmacy practices over the past thirty-five years. Teddy maintains his pharmacy registration by working as a locum pharmacist on the Sunshine Coast.

Teddy’s research interests revolve around pharmaceuticals and the law and intellectual property. In recent times Teddy has focused on biosimilars and the information exchange associated with biosimilars in intellectual property arrangements. Teddy’s research outputs in this area have been published in peer-reviewed journals in Australia and internationally and led to conference presentations through the Australian Centre for Health Law Research at QUT.

More recently Teddy has begun to focus on access to medicines and how the law, including intellectual property law, affects the ability of people to gain timely, affordable access to the medicines they need.
